Holy Night présente des photographies que Issei Suda a prises le soir du réveillon de Noël de 1991 à Tokyo.

« Combien de Japonais pensent à Jésus à Noël ? Le soir du Réveillon, en tout cas, ils achètent une bûche avant de rentrer à la maison, et les couples d’amoureux se retrouvent pour la soirée la plus romantique de l’année. Ces traditions sont devenues monnaie courante au Japon, et il serait vain de se prétendre brusquement bouddhiste et de s’écrier : « Bande d’idiots, on n’est même pas chrétiens ! » — Issei Suda

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. » — Issei Suda
