Japan, Bowing to Tradition by Jim Holmes

Jim has kindly agreed to speak to SoFA on the subject of ‘Japan, Bowing to Tradition’. From the northern ‘snow country’ to the southern tropical beaches, Japan is a diverse and complicated country.

See how Japan has integrated very traditional aspects of its culture into modern society. Micro cars to beer from machines and community bathhouses to tatami mats, Japan is not quite what you imagine, as tradition meets modernism.

Jim Holmes is a documentary photographer working on commercial projects and humanitarian interventions around the world. He will be using Zoom to provide us with this very interesting topic.
