Japan Trilogy | Chloé Jafé

Over the seven years Chloé Jafé stayed in Japan she developed a viscerally personal voice that is both plastic and documentary. Her immersion in Japan bore images of steel – sweaty and harsh, black and white, tender and ferocious – which reveal an unprecedented angle of an opaque country. Japan Trilogy is composed of the chapters: I Give You My Life which follows women in the Japanese mafia; Okinawa mon

Amour which is a photographic wandering in Okinawa, the island that was destroyed in World War II; and How I Met Jiro, which is an ode to the fallen Osaka. Jafé’s works highlight the little-known and subversive sides of an archipelago where modesty is a must.
