A book on Ken Kitano’s Our Face series, a series that he has been working on since 1999, when he started taking photos of various social groups ranging from Chinese laborer, to Muslim women, to world peace protesters. The project started in his motherland, Japan, but continued to other parts of the work, making it his life’s work. The series is painstakingly produced using darkroom layering process which combines dozens of negatives, images are projected on top of one another with precise exposures to create an icon of a particular community.
