On the Radiant Mix podcast this week, we feature Tetsuro Miyazaki, the Hāfu (half-Japanese, half-Belgian), photographer living in the Netherlands, who recently launched a gorgeous photography book, Hāfu2Hāfu, highlighting the mixed experience of half-Japanese people from all over the world.
Hāfu is the Japanese term to refer to somebody who is biracial, while in America the nouveau term for biracial/multiracial is “mixed.” The label Hāfu derives comes from the English word ‘half,’ referring to half foreign and half Japanese. In this episode, Tetsuro Miyazaki shares about his inspiration for the Hāfu2Hāfu project, which offers us a glimpse inside the beauty and hearts of half Japanese people on a global scale. Hope McGrath and Tetsuro both get real and open up while they challenge themselves to answer all kinds of insightful and fun questions about the mixed Hāfu experience that were posed in the Hāfu2Hāfu project.
