Meaning of a single photograph is as great as it can change the world.

 

JUJU PROJECT is、

It is a photo that can change the world. We intend to evoke deep feelings to the bottom of the heart in the viewer and to record history. We are also going to record a history of the truth and to make the people’s heart touch throughout our roles of a reform.

Ahn Sehong of the Juju Project has been taken photos based on the theme of ‘Comfort Women’, referring to ‘women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during the Second World War’, since 1990s and displayed the Korean ‘Comfort Women’ left in China for the first time in Seoul.

Ahn Sehong started to bring such a sensitive matter and its related issues to the public based upon his experiences of working with those victimised women. This led him to establish The Juju Project in order to work for their rights systematically. It came to us in a concrete plan in 2011 when his lecture-exhibitions on the subject were drawn special attentions to the public around in Japan. Many people shared their concerns with him after attending his exhibition, and they determined to support his forthcoming plans that he wanted to develop further the issues.

We are planning to set up a series of photograph exhibitions and lectures on the subject.

We are sure that this was based on the fact that the photos they appreciated immediately touched their emotion and consciousness. The concerned have gathered their ideas and determinations, so we are planning to set up a series of photograph exhibitions and lectures on the subject, so as to inform a wide range of people of the situations of their existences. The Juju Project would like to solve some problems faced to the victims throughout the media of the photograph exhibitions particularly in Japan.

• The Photograph Exhibition

In order to inform a wider range of the public of the actual conditions of the survived comfort women throughout photograph exhibitions we are making plans below:
- Urban tours of more than 10 cities in Japan (Tokyo, Hiroshima, Sapporo etc.)
- Overseas such as Seoul, New York, Paris, London, Berlin etc.

• The Lectures

This consists of several ways:
- We are to inform the public of their doings and verbal testimony throughout lectures.
- Photographers who have been working with those 'Comfort Women' are to present their works.
- We are to tell the youth about the truth that has never been on the history textbooks.

• The History Lessons

Photographs are the art and at the same time the historical document.。
- We continue to record the current lives of those victimised women.
- We are to document activities for solving the issue of 'Comfort Women' that is currently proceeding.
- We plan to offer various meetings between the comfort women and the public for keeping their memory.
