目的は、日本のさまざまなタブー問題に関するインタビューを伴う、一連のポートレートとライフスタイルのイメージを作成することです。人種差別、LGTBQ +、メンタルヘルス、女性軽視 「ミソジニー」 / 性差別、セクシャルハラスメント / レイプ、その他の問題を含みます。

The aim is to create a series of portrait and lifestyle images accompanied by interviews regarding different taboo issues in Japan including; Racism, LGTBQ+, Mental Health, Misogyny, Sexual Harassment and other social issues.

 

目的は、オンラインコミュニティの中に日本人が気軽に発言できる空間を作ることで、これらのトピックに関する会話を広げることです。これらに関する会話は絶対に必要なものであり、日常的に語られるべきものであるということを、この社会が認識できるようにしたいと思っています。

Hoping to open up conversations regarding these topics by creating a space within the online community where Japanese people can feel more comfortable speaking up. We want to help this society recognise that these conversations are absolutely necessary to have and that they should be normalised and spoken about on a daily basis.

 

このタブーに関する話をしても良いのです。このような問題を話しても大丈夫だと思えるような人たち、つまり友人や家族に囲まれることが大切です。世界には多くの社会的不公正がありますが、日本は先進国や発展途上国に比べて非常に遅れをとっています。やるべきことはたくさんありますが、私が日本にいながらにして、自分のイメージやクリエーターとのコラボレーション、居心地の悪い会話をすることで意識を広めることができれば、このプロジェクトを正当なものにしたいと思っています。

It’s ok to have these conversations. It’s important to surround yourself with people, i.e. friends and family, where you feel safe enough to speak about these issues. There are so many social injustices around the world, but Japan as a country is seriously lagging behind many progressive and developing countries. There is a lot of work to do here but if I can spread awareness through my imagery, through collaborating with creatives, through having those uncomfortable conversations while I’m living in Japan, then I’m here to do this project justice.
