Miki Soejima began working with photographs after completing her studies in cultural anthropology in Kyoto. Her projects straddle the line between fact and fiction, uncovering the inherent artifice and truths in images, the significance of authorship, and the power of suspended disbelief. This volume proposes a multi-layered view of Japanese contemporary society. The project ponders how our imagination can initiate a process that questions the narratives which surround us and the frameworks that sustain them, evoking a web of histories, myths, and constructed narratives. It comprises photographs taken in and around Tokyo, Okinawa, and other places, interspersed with still-life images. Published by FW: Books (Amsterdam).
