Artist's Description

My dearest Japanese friend, Hitomi-san with her newborn, Harumi-chan after his Omiyamaeri, (おみやまえ) a traditional Shinto ceremony to pray for a baby’s health and happiness. This ceremony occurs on the 31st day for boys and the 32nd day for girls. Here, Hitomi wears a traditional cloth, from which hang money envelopes. On Haruya-chan, the chinese character for “big” 大 is marked. Girls are marked with the character for “small” 小…Typically, only the grandparents of the baby are invited, but Hitomi allowed me to share in the experience for both of her children. It was such an honor. Taken in Osaka, Japan. (Split tone B&W)_
