There were over four million vending machines in Japan at the end of 2017. They can be found even in the most remote places, like at the foot of a snowy mountain, in dark and gloomy alleys, in the middle of a deserted car park, or next to a disused bus shelter. When night falls, their light illuminates the surroundings. These images are the work of Japanese photographer Eiji Ohashi, that he compiles in the series Roadside Lights. With his own unique approach, he puts these machines in the spotlight, machines that even time seemed to have forgotten.
