Bruce Osborn: Oyako - Portraying Japanese Generations

PingMag... Bruce Osborn: Oyako - Portraying Japanese Generations. "...In 1982 American photographer Bruce Osborn began what has become his lifelong work: the Oyako series. For the last 25 years he took pictures of one parent with one child in a white studio setting. Bruce even introduced its own version of the Japanese “Oyako No Hi” (parent and child) day: he organizes a huge photo session every year. After some time, Bruce would even repeat the same parent-child shoot to reveal the significant changes in the relationship between mother and daughter for example, the differing characteristics of fashion changing over the years or simply documenting people getting older. A part of Bruce’s huge archive is currently shown at the JCII Camera Museum in Tokyo until this Sunday, the 28th." More at Oyako no Hi. Thank you Vida Fuleira.
