April's theme is
MOTHERS & SISTERS.

RAINCOAT is a community of musicians, writers, visual artists, filmmakers, and more. We champion the work of womyn and the nurturing of safe, dynamic spaces that encourage its creation and distribution.
I’ve accrued thousands of photos since moving to Japan in August 2014, and I often take them from the same vantage point: classic one-point perspective, perfectly centered, shooting straight into the horizon.
In a nation that largely functions on ambiguity and what is left unsaid, these horizon lines help to keep me grounded. And regardless of summer or winter, day or night, finding such pristine paths leading into the distance reminds me that there is always a way forward: 一歩ずつ/ippozutsu, one step at a time.
