Making of boxes. It’s still raw, not yet polished.

Now we have got three, and still 12 more to go!

As part of the Newsprint Award 2014 fund-raising campaign. My mother is agreed to help her dear daughter by making this kind of box. When you think about Karen ethnic living in the jungle, you know they usually live in a wooden hut and many things they use in daily lives are DIY with materials from nature.

That’s the idea. So there you go, my seventy-year-old mother makes this box the way she did in the old days. Bruised hands we have at the mo, plus a little bit of my tears! -Noi Satirat Damampai-

The War Within

Walking up the mountains in tropical dark jungles, decayed gray skulls and human corps were all scattered in sight along the trails. I had no fear. They did no harm to me, the Spirits of the forest just let me pass through to their territory.The Spirits who sacrificed their lives along the way for more than 60 years of fighting. I continued even though I had no idea of where the road would possibly lead me to. Just keep walking, it’s whispering. So I continued…And finally, here I am, at the border of dreams and reality. To the WAR WITHIN.:: Reportage on the world’s longest civil war, the struggles of Karen ethnic group, Myanmar.

Subtle Beauty by Kazuhiko Matsumura (Limited Edition)

This is a story about the lifestyle of the Maiko and Geiko of Kyoto. In Kyoto there are five communities where Maiko and Geiko live. A lot of girls who aspire to become a Maiko come to these communities but most of them leave soon because of the strict lifestyle. They entertain mainly rich male guests at exclusive Japanese-style parties. They have to be elegant, polite and beautiful, but also entertaining. They live in a house with the housemother who manages all their affairs and other Maiko and young Geiko. They are thoroughly trained in how to behave by a housemother and the seniors.

After several years as a Maiko, and after they reach 20 years of age, they become a Geiko. This means being an adult in their community. During this period both their appearance and their inner maturity develop. After becoming a Geiko, they keep improving their hospitality and performing art skills. The true essence of the Maiko and Geiko’s beauty isn’t only their physical appearance but their subtle internal beauty.
