From pubisher's statement:

Over the years, Chloé Jafé has developed writing that is both visual and documentary, viscerally personal. From her 7 years of immersion in Japan (2013-2019), Chloé Jafé brings back steely black and white images, moist and harsh, tender and fierce, which reveal a unique vision of an opaque country.

His trilogy, composed of the chapters “I give you my life”, “Okinawa mon amour” and “How I met Jiro”, highlights the little-known and subversive aspects of an archipelago where modesty is essential.

When she left in 2013, Chloé Jafé planned to produce a multimedia work on women in the Japanese mafia. It was only after learning Japanese, and having completely immersed herself in Japanese culture, and more particularly that of the “Yakuzas”, that she was able to carry out this project, 6 years later. During this period of latency, she discovered the island of Okinawa. His sentimental wandering takes the form of a diary, which 4 years later becomes “Okinawa mon amour”, the second volume of his trilogy in Japan. Then, in 2018, she found herself confronted, in Osaka, in the Nishinari district, with another Japan. It was then that she planned the third part of this trilogy.
