Elimination Method

I don't like a person who is in groups; I like a person who is alone. So I take photos of lonely people as the center of the world. In cases where the person is with someone, I capture them in a moment when they appear as if alone. Then, everyone comes to seem like a precious presence, an important being. Call it arrogant, but when I look at these scenes, forcibly collected and brought together, I feel as if I could become good friends with any one of the people I have photographed. There is neither a minority nor a majority in the minimum relationship of one to one, so both of us can not lose by any majority vote. Maybe this is how to get on and get by in this world—by a method of elimination.
