Eventhough I like winter I want spring to come owo
And it is getting even colder here >~<❄
(Sorry for the small captions but I simply don't know what to tell you right now ( ´° ³°`)
Feel like school and other things are pulling out my entire power and creativity lately ( ; _ ; ))
This is Juma. He is 9. His father is Tanzanian, his mother is Japanese.
His question about mixed race identity to you is: “Do you like the color of your skin?”
This portrait and question is part of @hafu2hafu; a photo project about mixed race Japanese identity. I photograph Japanese hāfu (or people with one Japanese and one non Japanese parent) from all over the world. Each person shares one question about identity with you - the viewer.
I have currently photographed and interviewed 90 Japanese hāfu from 65 different 'other' countries. There are 193 countries according to the United Nations, so my ultimate goal is to represent all 192 possible combinations of nationalities with Japanese.
