The parents play such an important role in the growth in their children and I hope you will think about your own family relations when looking at these photos. Globally, we are facing many critical problems including the pandemic, wars, famines, global warming, and other environmental issues. Collectively, we need to take action now for the sake of future generations along with all the living species that inhabit this planet.

In addition to the photographers in this exhibition, I would also like to express my gratitude to The Month of Photography, PSJ (Photographic Society of Japan), IWPA (International Women in Photo Association), OYAKO Day Planning Committee, Chiyoda Ward Cultural Project, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, along with all the people and organizations that have been supporting OYAKO Day project.
