■ Statement

At various public places mainly in Asia, I'm recording the appearance of people, things and spaces as they are. However, it's not the purpose to reveal some objective facts or truth. It is a consideration of the way of confronting the scenes where anyone can see (= general society), from my individual eyes. And the collected scenes are also a part of my life. By thinking twice about them, I would like to compile the contact point between society and my life to be lovable.

アジアを中心としたさまざまな公共の場で、人やモノ、空間などのありのままの様子を記録しています。しかし何かしらの客観的事実や真実を明らかにすることが目的ではありません。誰もが目にしうる光景=社会一般との向き合い方を一個人の視点から考察したものです。同時に撮りためた光景は自分の人生の一部でもあります。じっくりと振り返りながら、社会との接点がより愛すべきものになるよう編纂していきたいと思います。
