'Pink Feminist' by @yakuzayu
I made a project “Pink Feminist” which is about female body issue for Japanese people. Because here in Japan, every girl cares too much about shaving their body hair, being skinny and acting “kawaii” in front of males. I always feel uncomfortable about that, so I shot some ordinary Japanese girls and wanted to celebrate their natural beauty. I want people to love the parts of their body that has, in the past, been shamed or seen as disgusting, because every part of your body should be seen as beautiful. Having body hair, being fat, being skinny, and getting older : it's all are normal if you are living, but unfortunatelythey are seen as ugly things in Japanese society. However I believe these things make us human and beautiful.
