Oyako (Bruce Osborn's Photo Life Project)

 - Feb 11, 2007
Take a look at the picture. Can you tell who is the mother and who is the daughter? Let me give you a hint: the mother is a Japanese rock star. The daughter is a highschooler. Got it? Keep reading and I will tell you the answer at the end of this post.

Bruce Osborn, a famous photographer, has spent more than 25 years in Japan, taking pictures of Japanese families in a quest for trying to picture the generation gap in Japanese families and society. In his lifelong project, you can see beautiful pictures of parents and sons together, ranging from a pet shop owner and his pon star daughter, our pictured rock star singer and her teenage daughter, a sumo wrestler and his son, also sumo wrestler... there are dozens of beautiful pictures with their stories behind, trying to illustrate the changes produced in just one generation.

Bruce Osborn has committed most of his life to this project, and I am sure in coming decades, this project will be reknowned and acclaimed as a reference in the culture and social trends and studies worldwide.
