Guest Speaker's Profile
Laura Liverani (http://www.lauraliverani.com) is a documentary photographer and lecturer based between Japan and Italy. In her works, published in The Guardian, The Washington Post, and Marie Claire, among others, she has portrayed elderly cheerleaders, senior models, women sumo wrestlers, and Hokkaido’s indigenous Ainu population. Her photography focuses on lesser-known communities of today’s Japan and highlights the stories of individuals: community leaders, artists, and above all ordinary people. At the same time, her works challenge stereotypical representations of Japan, as they engage with the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, and age.
