Sayuki, 2012 by Cilophyte Sayuki, 2012 by Cilophyte
This work explores my personal interest in the merging of cultures, in particular, those of the east and the west. Though I was born in Taiwan, I was raised in the United States, and thus have experienced a very dichotomous upbringing. Originally from Australia, Sayuki is the first foreign geisha in Japanese history. I find her efforts to secure the continuance of a tradition in danger of dying out in the twenty-first century admirable and inspirational to the highest degree.
