In conversation with evocative photographer Teru Kuwayama

Australian clothing brand Saxony recently invited American photographer… Teru Kuwayama to Australia. He’s spent much of the last decade documenting life and war in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kashmir:

I spent time with Kuwayama in Sydney and he is a humane man who has seen the reality of catastrophic Western policies in countries that need more than privatised war.

I like how Saxony, with shops across Sydney, are displaying some confronting images by Kuwayama in their stores. It’s a unique way to engage people with work they would normally never see when buying clothes. A brave choice for retailer and a welcome one.
