Self Portrait from Japan, 2011.
This picture was taken right after the tsunami. I was wandering around in areas which were horribly destroyed and I came upon this beauty salon on the second floor of a building. I don't think the owners had visited the property after the disaster so everything was lying around untouched. I found boxes full of hair pieces, wigs, and jeweled pins. My guess is that these items were used for brides, parties and more traditional gatherings.
