Miyuki Okuyama: Dear Japanese (spec. ed.)
70 years has past since the end of the World War 2. There are Japanese Dutch people in the Netherlands, who still live in the shadow of the war. They were born in former Dutch East Indies under Japanese occupation, as the offspring of Japanese soldiers. After the independence of Indonesia and the repatriation to the Netherlands, they were even seen as the children of enemy, a taboo. The encounter with them became my first tangible war experience. The photo project “Dear Japanese” examines the history, war/postwar experience and the formation of identity from the perspective of a Japanese living in the Netherlands.
