Boy shaving girl's head // Pictured here is Teddy, a 16 year old boy shaving Rehema's hair, who is 4. Both are part of the children's home. On rare occasions a barber will come to the school and shave everyone's hair with proper equipment, but for the most part the kids purchase a razor blade for 10 shillings and just DIY it. It's sweet how the hair culture here is such a bonding moment between the person who's hair is being cut or braided, and the person styling the hair. Also, all the females rock a bald head.
With clear nights few & far in between this spring in the Swiss Alps, one such evening allowed me to capture the crescent moon as it was about to set behind the Luisin (2’786m). An adapted exposure time brought detail out of its shadowy part, while Venus, shinning bright in the night sky, kept a watchful eye on this beautiful scene.
Every time we look back at our time in Nara, we always remember our enchanting encounter with the free deers of Japan as @unrealaltj's song, Nara, constantly played in our heads. Through that magical moment, we realised that we should share the stories of the world even more because maybe through short notes or letters a person could be free from the oppression created by their own selves.
The idea of Your Letters Live Project was conceived in Nara and was given birth in Singapore (conversationsofus.com/your-leters-singapore), we wish to spread this project more in our current home country, Philippines, and of course, the rest of the world. For now, we are thankful for the kind messages that we receive, we will go to your countries hopefully soon.
We know it is difficult to just be free but like the deers of Japan, we wish that you'll find hope in the gloomy place that you are in right now.
We'll be sharing more of our stories up until our second anniversary next month. #ConvosInJapan#NaraDeer#DailyConversations#ConversationsofUs
