Shiho Fukada speaking about her work at Photoville in New York

Shiho Fukada will be speaking about her latest photo project – Nowhere Left but Here – at this year’s Photoville festival in Brooklyn, NY, on 16 September 2018 at 60 Water Street in Dumbo, next to Photoville.

The project looks at the extraordinary rise in senior citizens, especially older women, who are sent to prison in Japan. Most are arrested for shoplifting – either because they can’t make ends meet or in order to get a roof over their head, warm meals and company. Loneliness drives many to to try and find stability and a community – even if they find this only behind bars.
