Played represents the first solo project by Yoshi Kametani following his recent successful collaborations with Daisuke Yokota and IPG Project. A conceptual work in the form of a hybrid book (part photobook, part novella) based on events that take place in the criminal underworld of New York City. 

The protagonist, bored with his mundane existence and day to day routine, decides one night to walk aimlessly through mid-town Manhattan. Serendipitously ending up in Times Square, a tasteless corporate Disneyland and haven to seedy business, drugs, prostitution and crime, he finds himself intrigued by the area and begins being drawn back night after night. Unexpectedly, he soon gets to know some of the regulars who hang around the streets and eventually meets a curiously compelling character. Quickly befriended, the protagonist is taken on a journey down a convoluted path riddled with deception. Hustle after hustle, lie after lie, a string of events leads to an unforeseen, undesirable and potentially dangerous situation.
