My favorite words

I always feel sad when I see stars on women’s nipple.
Why I have to hide a part of my body?

A friend of mine a yoga teacher, said these words. She’s my hero.

As a photographer I could not agree more. Especially in Japan, woman’s body is a victim of both ignorance and over sexualisation. Loving and adoration of the beauty of woman’s bare skin is something incomprehensible for the mainstream audience in Japan, and they are sure to complain whenever there is as much as a nipple without a star covering it.

Yet, these same people silently approve gravia idol magazines and late night TV shows. They never complain about it.

I strongly believe women’s body should be freed from this miserable era.
