JAPAN PHOTO AWARD 2018 Winner — Luxury beyond Death series
selecting judge: Emilia Van Lynden / Unseen Amsterdam

” … Takemura gives us a simple yet insightful look into a prominent ritual surrounding death in Vietnam. A compelling reflection upon modern day consumerism, Luxury Beyond Death highlights how relatives burn paper offerings at the graves of the deceased with the belief that they will need the same luxury items that they had when they were still living. The project highlights our obsession with consumerism whilst simultaneously raising questions about what awaits us in the afterlife. “

— Emilia van Lynden (Unseen Artistic Director)
