    For Underground (1998-2000), Hatakeyama photographed the
    underground waterways of Shibuya in Tokyo. Of the series, he comments: 'The things of the underground world exist within perfect darkness,
    oblivious to the light and sense of vision of the world above the
    ground.' (Naoya Hatakeyama, Tankosha, 2002, p.iii)

    Number 3 from the sold-out edition of 7.
