Coexistences: Portraits of Today's Japan

Photography exhibition by Laura Liverani

Discover Japan’s lesser-known communities through a photography exhibition by Laura Liverani.

Six photo series portray the stories of elderly cheerleaders, a school for senior models, women sumo wrestlers, tobi construction workers, full-body spandex suit enthusiasts and Hokkaido’s indigenous Ainu population.

The people of every community portrayed, however distant from one another, all share a strong sense of group identity—an identity that is actively expressed in daily life.

This exhibition highlights the stories of individuals and their expression of identity; broadening our knowledge of Japanese everyday life and culture.

Running alongside the exhibition is an event series, exploring belonging and collective identity among the wider Japanese community.
