This is a collage of touristic photographs, focusing on the used car industry in Tanzania. Many automobiles in Africa are discarded vehicles, imported from Japan. Some of these still have their old signs written with Japanese characters. Tsuchimoto uses this material to problematize the way their Asians mirror themselves in “exotic cultures”, like Sweden and Africa.
