Expats x Migrants Project + Street Exhibition
This year marks the 30th aniversary of the Maastricht Treaty. In this context, Studio Europa is organising a citizen’s panels, called the Conference on the Future of Europe. To bring the debate about prejudice towards migration from the conference venue to the streets, they invited us to put the Expats x Migrants photo project on display in bus shelters. (more…)
Expats x Migrants: Call for Participants
'Expats x Migrants' invites people to question the distinction made between migrants and expats. While the term ‘expat’ is entangled with assumptions of privilege and class, the label ‘migrant’ somehow connotes something lesser, even though both groups consist of people who moved away from their country of origin.

Hāfu2Hāfu photo book is out!
After completing the crowdfunding campaign in March 2018, and a wonderful year full of exhibitions, workshops and meeting many more hāfu people to photograph and interview, I am extremely happy to say the Hāfu2Hāfu photo book out and shipping worldwide. Hāfu2Hāfu is an ongoing worldwide photography project exploring what it means to be hāfu – a person with one Japanese parent. Japanese-Belgian photographer Tetsuro Miyazaki has interviewed and portrayed fellow Japanese hāfu, with a parent from nearly 100 different countries. The 120 people in this book do not answer questions but ask them: each hāfu poses a question to you, the viewer. With these questions, Hāfu2Hāfu is creating dialogue and stimulates self-reflection about identity, so that we can find answers of our own. The regular photo book, signed copies and the Limited Edition (60 pcs) photo books are available through the Hafu2Hafu Webshop.
New York Times: If you gaze at the many portraits (…) photographed by Mr. Miyazaki, you can see the searching in their faces, the puzzling out (…). But you can also gain the sense that there are deep currents, forces old and powerful, in opposition to wall-building and racial hunkering.[gallery size="large" link="file" ids="2448,2447,2449,2450,2451,2452"]
