Project #001

Japanese Rooms (photo project and book)
How do the Japanese live in Japan? How do they live abroad? Do they create their own culture in foreign cities? What do they take with them from home? Feelings, things – sensuous or tangible memories?
The artist and graphic designer Sven Ingmar Thies gained insight into the lives of 82 Japanese citizens in five global cities over the course of nine years: Tokyo, Berlin, New York, Shanghai and Vienna.
