Japanese Nobility
The Japanese Imperial family is said to be the oldest continuous hereditary monarchy in the world. The present emperor traces his lineage back to Emperor Jimmu, who was born in 660 BC. Besides the imperial family, there are many old families in Japan that trace their heritage back many generations. The images in this series are a selection from a continuing body of work documenting these aristocratic old families.
