Last weekend I saw Heavy Light: Recent Photography and Video from Japan at the International Center of Photography (ICP).
By far my favorite were Tomoko Sawada’s series of Japanese school class photos in which she plays the role of every girl, piecing together her own self portraits.
I just uploaded my own self portraits on Flickr.
The show is on through September 7, 2008

Photography, fashion, Japanese land & cityscapes. I loved Izima Kaoru’s large-scale, ultra-saturated photographs that portray death of super-models.
