PARENTS AND CHILDREN….
Bruce Osborn was born in Southern California and raised on its surf and skateboard culture. After graduating from the University of the Pacific with a BA in Fine Art, he studied Photography at Art Center College of Design. He began working for Phonograph Record Magazine as their photographer and photo editor and also did free lance photography for other music related businesses. In 1980 Bruce moved to Japan where he is a well known commercial photographer and filmmaker.
Oyako means parents-children in Japanese and is the title of a series I have been photographing since 1982. In the process of photographing hundreds of parents and children it has become my life work. Focusing on this basic relationship, I am able to see the changes that Japanese society is going through.
