Ourland - Makers in Kyushu

In early 2017, Ransom photographer Parker Fitzgerald was approached by IMS in Fukuoka, Kyushu to travel to western Japan in order to visit and document some of the region's most unique and interesting makers. Among those featured: Sotaru Matsumoto, a seventh-generation porcelain artist, Chiharu Ohgomori, an indigo dyer, Moonstar, one of Japan's oldest footwear manufacturers, Kenichi Konomi,  a fourteenth-generation green tea roaster, Chiharu Hatakeyama and her husband Kouichi, farmers, and many more.
