TTP is a series of photographs made by Japanese photographer Hayahisa Tomiyasu from the window of his former student apartment in the German city of Leipzig. From his south-facing view, we see a 'tischtennisplatte' or table tennis table, used for a multitude of purposes: A sunbed, a sink, a climbing frame for children, an exercise area, a lunch spot for the family, a refuge from busy streets, among various other uses – except from table tennis. Tomiyasu spent five years documenting the humble table, and thanks to his persistent curiosity, we observe the idiosyncrasies of human behavior and social habits as the seasons change, scenes mutate, and people come and go.
