100 kimono project 1

Earlier this month, I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the 100 Kimono Project, a counter-protest to the shut-down of “Kimono Wednesday”, an exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Art.  These shots were done by the talented team of Kaz Matamura and Michael Helms.

Let us not be so quick to say “fetish” and “my culture is not your costume.” A society living in fear of offending, lives also in fear of expression. Let us find a larger meaning before we find offense.

After all, what is art and culture if not to be shared? #‎100kimono‬ ‪#‎kimono4all‬
