OYAKO Parents & Children
Photo exhibition by Bruce Osborn 
Main Bar July 04 - 31, 2015
july.2015

I began taking photos of parents and children as a way of looking at Japanese culture and the changes from one generation to the next. In the 33 yr. since starting this series, I have taken thousands Oyako and the project has grown in ways I never expected. In 2003, my wife and I started Oyako Day social action which is on the 4th Sunday of July. On Oyako Day, I take photos of 100 families in an all day Super Photo Session. July 26 will be our 13th Oyako Day event. For more information about Oyako Day, go to the website.

* Photos in this exhibition are from an ongoing series I'm taking for Mainichi Newspaper.
