Photo Exhibition - Japanese Immigrants’ Experiences in New Zealand.

The photo exhibition introduces the experiences and life stories of the first and second generation Japanese immigrants in New Zealand. Through this photo exhibition one can know more about how Japanese immigrants adapt to a Kiwi lifestyle while maintaining their culture, and how they contribute to New Zealand society and introduce Japanese culture to New Zealanders.

This photo exhibition is a collaboration of Susan Zou, member of the Japan Society of Wellington and Noriko Murakami. The photographs were taken by Simon Neale.

The exhibition was organized by Japan Society of Wellington. The project was funded by Wellington City Council “Creative Communities Wellington Local Funding Scheme” and “Arts and Culture Fund”, and Lottery Environment and Heritage.

Twelve people were interviewed and photographed. They are mostly from Wellington region, with varying age, gender, background and generation. The summary of each interviewee’s story is shown together with the interviewee’s photos.

There is a chance to win one of three prizes by filling in a questionnaire. The prizes are Japanese paper drawers made by one interviewee “Drawer Lady” Reiko Rapita.
