However, these rigid gender roles are being challenged by women who are seeking to move beyond the strictly defined confines of their traditional roles as caregivers and homemakers.

Later that year, the series was exhibited in New York at the Yossi Milo Gallery, with significant public curiosity and reportage. Yoshiyuki, whose real name has never been revealed, apparently continues to work as a commercial photographer in Japan.
Western critics and viewers felt that the photographs either confirmed  or contradicted  Western attitudes about Japan. Some saw them as part of a continuing Japanese art practice of portraying voyeurism is an erotic motif, from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Ukiyo-e woodblock erotic prints to films like In the Realm of Senses. Before taking those pictures, I visited the parks for about six months without shooting them.
I just went there to become a friend of the voyeurs. To photograph the voyeurs, I needed to be considered one of them. I behaved like I had the same interest as the voyeurs, but I was equipped with a small camera. In these parks on these nights there were no police.

Whilst these acts were criminal, they were never criminalised. There were no charges laid, no police interviews, no witnesses, no trials, no judgments. There are just the photographs. These photographs are the residue of crimes that never encountered the law, and in viewing them we perform the same voyeurism that might, in different circumstances, invoke the law.
They are probative of illicit public sex, and the making and display of these images was also unlawful in Japan. What Yoshiyuki says here about the law is entirely untrue.
It was illegal to have sex in the park, it was illegal to watch couples having sex in the park, it was illegal to photograph them, and it was also illegal to display or distribute those photographs. Fictional explorations of Japanese sexuality were transformed during the Meiji period , away from descriptive erotic writing towards a narrative that revealed interiority and identity. Yokota-Murakami wrote:. Yoshiyuki and Araki, in their conversation, appear not to observe these distinctions, conflating the voyeur, the peeper, the photographer, the innovator and the pervert.
It shows your shadow. Araki: Maybe everybody will be doing it by this summer, once word about the Sunpak flash unit spreads. Araki: Lechers are the only hope for the twenty-first century. Only lechers come up with good ideas. Only lechers take good photographs. So are you one too? Scholars differ in their views about Japanese attitudes to public sex. McLelland writes that public displays of affection were introduced to Japan by American soldiers after the Second World War,  and that American GIs sought out sex in public parks,  practices which were policed by US military patrols and ignored by Japanese police.
The notion that a space can be both public and hidden is powerful in the context of a jurisprudence in which intimate secrets are disclosed as an act of justice. One interpretation of his chosen title, then, is that he is inviting his images to be seen as transgressions, its subjects issuing wilful challenges to public authority.

However the scholarship of Cassegard, McLelland and others demonstrates that there is a legitimate alternative way of imagining these public intimacies, one that does not demand sanction for transgression, or more precisely, one that does not require transgression to be exhibited and judged as transgressive.
The sense of the breached sanctuary, the shameful disclosure, the thrilling revelation, these are also the effects of some acts of open justice, revealing the pleasure in seeing a secret that has fallen out of place. It is important to distinguish these effects on a spectrum of pleasure; not all voyeurisms are equal. The voyeur who hides behind a tree to watch might be engaged in a distinct category of behaviour, and the magazine reader, the photographer, or the gallery visitor enjoys a different kind of looking, and not all of them actively sought out the pleasure they received.

Voyeurism demands an element of display, and voyeurs observe from a safe distance, although that distance varies. Decency and propriety might be preserved for the voyeur; they may experience the thrill of transgressing a boundary without necessarily crossing a line.nttsystem.xsrv.jp/libraries/6/pazeq-android-spionage.php

Are the voyeurs content merely to watch, or are they active participants in these public sex acts? In an email interview with Philip Gefter of the New York Times , Yoshiyuki gave his own account of the practices he documented, one which suggestively refuses to resolve ambiguity:.
