Signed by the photographer, limited to 500 copies One of the most recognizable artists of her generation, Tomoko Sawada is a Japanese contemporary feminist photographer and performance artist. For this contribution to our One Picture Book series, Sawada presents twelve self-portraits, each one showing her made up as a different ethnicity and cultural background. As playful as it appears to be, Sawada?s work has a very serious underlying message. In her own words, ?All people?despite having different types of so-called ?added values? such as nationality, race, religion, and language?are essentially and naturally equal human beings. This fundamental underlies my photographic work: I aim to point people euphemistically to the fact that humans share 99.99999% of the same genes.?
