Upon her recent arrival in the United States, Japanese photographer Misaki Matsui uncovered a little known chapter in her family’s history—her grandfather had previously lived in California 100 years before. Misaki set out to learn more about her grandfather’s life in California by following and photographing the footsteps he had taken a century ago. Q&A to follow.
