Founded in 1992, Tohkon Judo Academy is one of the largest judo dojos in the United States. With an international membership of players representing dozens of countries worldwide, Tohkon’s roots nevertheless date back to the period of Japanese American resettlement from WWII incarceration camps.
Judo, a grappling art somewhat akin to wrestling, has been a popular pastime among the Nikkei community since the turn of the century when Japanese began immigrating en masse for plantation jobs in Hawaii and farm and cannery work up and down the West Coast of the mainland U.S.

Tohkon is affiliated with the Chicago Judo Black Belt Association, founded in 1947, who received its charter directly from the Kodokan (Judo World Headquarters in Tokyo). They are additionally affiliated with the United States Judo Federation, USA Judo, and Illinois Judo Inc.

I am gradually obtaining consent from individuals in the cotton processing plant to use images I have taken.

The cotton factory is located in #rhinocamp employing locals and refugees who have resettled in Uganda.

This is Justine Ofezu who clears the sorting machines as the raw cotton is processed. There is a lot of dust and other fine particles that come away as this process takes place, so he wears a muslin face mask.

The cotton factory is a project I've formulated in the last week which I'm working on between workshops for the participatory photography project.

Keep posted for more work.

While more and more Syrian #refugees and internally displaced are choosing to make the hard journey back home, more are still being #displaced.

With conditions deteriorating for many #refugees in the region, and few #resettlement opportunities in other countries, many seeking #safety could end up taking dangerous and illegal routes to reach alternative countries or feel pushed to return to Syria.

40% of people seeking asylum in Indonesia survive without support from the government or other humanitarian organisations; they are forced to use their savings and rely on money sent by family and friends. Many, at some point, end up in desperate situations without sufficient food or shelter. JRS Indonesia’s “befriend urban refugees” project in West Java is the main service provider for the most vulnerable: those trying to survive the year’s long waiting process of receiving refugee status and resettlement.

I am currently in Northern Uganda doing a participatory photography project based around how agriculture impacts refugee and host communities in terms of resettlement.

As part of this I have had the opportunity ​to learn more and photograph the way cotton is collected and processed.

Workshop #2 is today!
