Ayaka Nobe “But Cher”
“Butcher” is an occupation of slaughtering animals for their meat. In developed countries including Japan, people rely on machines to prepare domesticated animals for consumption. In a complete economic system of cold efficiency, the process of raising farm animals, slaughtering, and eating them is so automated that “life and death” is wrapped in a veil.
Ayaka Nobe’s parents have owned a farm and a meat shop since her grandparent’s generation. Her work is based off the research of slaughtering animals; she captures powerful portraits, connecting people to their food source and engaging them in her father’s profession.
