Real People: Riko

We believe that meaningful change can only come from understanding people and culture. And one of the ways we have decided to illustrate that on our new website is through the introduction of our ‘Real People’ photographic series.

Name: Riko 
Sydney (from Japan)

What is something that made you feel joy recently?
Two months ago I came here for a working holiday from Japan.

What is something that frustrates you?
When I’m working in restaurants, sometimes I can’t understand what people are talking about because my English skills aren’t good, then I feel frustrated.

What do you love about living in your city?
I’m from Japan. My favourite food is Takoyaki.

What are you passionate about?
Eating. I work as a waitress.

Square Holes engaged local photographer Thomas McCammon to go out into the community and photograph individuals and locales, while learning about their stories.

Thomas recently travelled overseas to Singapore, and Greece and locally to Adelaide and Sydney, where he took to the streets to meet with passersby to provide a snapshot of their lives. The Real People series is intended as a small insight for our clients and readers into the ‘real people’ driving change.
