_____________________________________________________________________

I am a commercial photographer in Tokyo.
I started doing photography to break free.
To do so, I intend to remove the limiting frames within myself.
Things that have aged and have a history attract me,
and I find beauty and freedom in distortion and deflection,
and also things that have gone out of pre-established harmony intrigue me.
After getting tired of taking pictures the way
I was told itʼ s “supposed to” be, I started intentionally damaging my work.
I made a collection of them and that became one of my art books.
Today I see myself playing around with lines and shapes in the air freely.
When I donʼ t like it after placing the image on a piece of paper,
I just keep adding and adding and go forward.
The fact that image lags and stains play a great roll is quite similar to the way us
humans live by our experiences.
What gives me pleasure is wondering why I choose these colours,
the shapes, the locations and what kind of scene I can create after placing them,
and also wondering why it makes you feel so good....
these things that are ambiguous and unclear.
