Portraits | Onishi JP

Most of these photographs represent not only some wonderful friends but also the vivid community of the town of Onishi. When I first met the people and the setting in rural Japan in 2015, I immediately fell in love. The host of the residency, American born Kijel Hahn became a very close friend over the years. It is the setting of the town beneath the green hills and the local people as the recurring artists from all over, who makes this place so special.
