Holy Night presents photographs that Issei Suda took on the night of Christmas Eve 1991 in Tokyo.
« I wonder how many Japanese people actually think of Jesus Christ on Christmas. We just observe Christmas Eve by buying cake and bringing it home to eat; lovers spend it together as the most romantic night of the year. These kinds of customs have become the norm. I could suddenly play the part of the righteous Buddhist and call everyone out on it – You dumbasses, you aren’t even Christians – but it feels like it’d be a waste. »
