Press Release Hāfu2Hāfu Photo Book

Posted by / February 21, 2019 / Categories: press / 0 Comments
After completing the crowdfunding campaign in March 2018, and a wonderful year full of exhibitions, workshops and meeting many more haāfu people to photograph and interview, I am extremely happy to say the Hāfu2Hāfu photo book is now in the caring hands of the printing company. We are expecting the Hāfu2Hāfu photo book to be printed early April 2019 and will ship worldwide.

Books can be already ordered through the webshop with a pre-launch discount.

2018年3月に クラウドファンディングキャンペーンを達成後、イベント・撮影・インタビュー等と盛りだくさんの素晴らしい一年を経て、大変嬉しいことに、今Hāfu2Hāfu写真集は印刷会社の手に無事に渡りました。2019年4月上旬印刷の見込みなので、全世界へその後出荷します。

今なら発売前割引でウェブショップにて写真集を事前注文可能です

Tokyo Interlopers – an interview with Tetsuro

Tokyo Interlopers – an interview with Tetsuro

Posted by / February 14, 2019 / Categories: press / 0 Comments

In January 2019, Tetsuro was interviewed by Isaac “Tac” Aquino, the founder of Tokyo Interlopers.

“I was born and raised in Belgium to a Japanese dad and a Belgian mom. My father, who was a karate teacher, passed away when I was 14. My first job was at a Japanese credit card company in Amsterdam, to prove to the world that I could work for a Japanese company. But because I wanted to do something creative, I gradually moved to advertising. However, with no creative background, I did what people with no skills usually do—become an account manager. From there, I started doing my own side project, which eventually turned into my company (I was promoting tap water while trying to get people to drink less bottled water).
