Link in BIO: Read #Afixed's exclusive interview with Hitomi Watanabe.
Hitomi Watanabe: I began drifting to the Zenkyoto when my friend’s boyfriend was chosen as the leader of the Tokyo University riot. She was leaving to hand him his change of clothes and I decided to go with her. There, I became inspired by him and asked if I could photograph him. I was invited inside by him and the people around became suspicious of whether I was a news reporter or a spy so he created a pass to put around my arm for me so I could go in and out of the barricades. He was soon wanted by the police so I barely got to see him but I continued to photograph around me.
