Located in Toyokawa city, the “Light Walls House” is a wooden house imagined by Japanese studio mA-style architects.

In this photo series, I want to explore the idea of vision and open a conversation about being vision impaired.
I got my first pair of glasses when I was in sixth grade; fourteen years and ten pairs of glasses later, I still remember sitting at my desk in my classroom and squinting to make my eyes focus on the words on the board. Now as an adult my glasses are very much a part of my identity. They help me see the world, literally.
Each of the subjects I photograph see the world in a different way based on their optical prescription. I ask each subject how many pairs of glasses they own and why they choose wear glasses. Though being vision impaired has become a fashionable disability, if given the chance to free themselves of their glasses, would they?
