Exhibition: Too Tired for Sunshine

The images in the book and photo series Too Tired for Sunshine represent a view of the world as I see it, filtered through the lens of my struggles with anxiety and depression. The title refers to the experience of feeling so melancholy that not even a sunny day can raise your spirits.

Shot largely in my adopted home of Vermont from 2011 to the present, the images offer a personal interpretation of the Green Mountain State, juxtaposing familiar and picturesque tropes with more surreal, sometimes disquieting, subjects.

Shusenjo: The Main Battleground of the Comfort Women Issue

The “comfort women” issue is perhaps Japan’s most contentious present-day diplomatic quandary.  Inside Japan, the issue is dividing the country across clear ideological lines. Supporters and detractors of “comfort women” are caught in a relentless battle over empirical evidence, the validity of oral testimony, the number of victims, the meaning of sexual slavery, and the definition of coercive recruitment. Credibility, legitimacy and influence serve as the rallying cry for all those involved in the battle.
