Japanese Photographer Dresses as a Fictional Granny

American Photographer with Japanese Roots Publishes Book about Fictional Granny.

An American photographer with Japanese roots, Kyoko Hamada, is collecting money to publish the project I used to be you, featuring herself as a fictional elderly woman, Kikuchiyo-san. Hamada wrote that she spent a lot of time looking into mirror dressed like elderly woman and saw herself as a different person. She began feeling comfortable in her “new body.” Creating imaginative scenes from the life of Kikuchiyo-san in her apartment, in stores, and on the streets, the photographer realized people of different ages react in different ways to the same events like getting grey hair or saying goodbye to loved ones.

The fundraising campaign will last until June 8th.
