Coexistences - Portraits of Today's Japan

This photo exhibition brings together several of Laura Liverani’s portrait series from Japan: elderly cheerleaders, a school for senior models, women sumo wrestlers, tobi construction workers, full-body spandex suit enthusiasts and Hokkaido’s indigenous Ainu population. Six separate stories portray the lesser-known communities of today’s Japan. The people of every community portrayed, however distant from one another, all share a strong sense of group identity—an identity that is actively expressed in daily life.
