Bruce Osborn’s new book “Oyako: An Ode to Parents and Children” won Golden Winner on People – Family category on TIFA (TOKYO INTERNATIONAL FOTO AWARDS) site. Please check the article from HERE Books can be purchased from HERE
When Bruce Osborn first photographed punk musicians and their parents in 1982, he had no way of knowing that it would turn out to be a life-long project of over 7,000 photo shoots, covering Japanese society in all its variety from musicians, sushi chefs, and monks, to sports figures, adult film actresses, celebrities and the family next door. The 144-page book explores the very meaning of family and familial relationships and challenges us to consider our feelings about family. It features an introduction from the photographer and comments, quotes and stories from those photographed – with 88 photographs. http://www.bruceosborn.com/#/work/oyako Amazon US https://goo.gl/u1ApVr Amazon JP https://goo.gl/oVxmSz Amazon UK https://goo.gl/7rrU8q
