I am very proud to present the first 30 photos and questions of the new chapter of Hafu2Hafu for which I will try to photograph and interview one hāfu from every country, mixed with Japan.
Ultimately I aim at meeting 192 hafu, since there are 193 UN recognised countries.
These 30 photos and questions represent hāfu from 30 countries and 6 continents whom I’ve met in Los Angeles, Tokyo and Amsterdam. Some were born and raised in Japan, some grew up abroad. Some speak only Japanese and some don’t speak hardly any Japanese.Please have a look at the portraits and questions and share your thoughts with us.
I will continue to post photos and questions in the future, as the project progresses.
I would like to thank everybody who participated in this part of project (all the hāfu and their families), everyone who helped me contact participants and all the people and organisations that helped spread the word. Finally, I want to thank the Hapa Japan Project for helping me start this project! This would not have been possible without your support, enthusiasm and constructive feed back.
