47. Taro Moberly

47. Expat life through a lens – with Taro Moberly Transcontinental Overload

We're venturing east today, to Japan! My guest is Taro, a Kyoto based photographer, who grew up in California, but decided to explore his heritage and moved to Japan in his twenties.We talk about what it's like to be a foreigner in a country that's strange and familiar at the same time, the intricacies of Japanese rules of behaviour, drinking culture, and why there is only one way to eat potato chips.  And of course we talk about photography, and how a hobby can become a lot more than just a hobby.  Taro's book, In Kyoto, a collection of over 80 photographs, will be published later this year.  You can find out more about Taro on Instagram, Twitter, or visit his website.If you're interested in Trope Publishing and the projects and artists they feature, you can find out more here. Prints of Taro's photography are also available! Book recommendation: Erin Meyer, The Culture Map.Don't forget to subscribe to Transcontinental Overload, and check out my website if you'd like to find out more about me.And of course, you can always sponsor the podcast on Ko-fi.
