子供の頃。河原の石コロを集めたり、海岸で拾った貝殻を部屋に並べたことはありませんか? それがある日、大人たちに「汚い」「邪魔」と言われ捨てられてしまう。大人になるとおかしな常識や固定観念が邪魔をして、そこにあるものが見えなってしまいます。気が付くと僕はそんな大人たちが見向きもしないものばかりを撮影していました。壁にあるシミや錆び、公園の枯葉など誰も見ようとしない。それどころか汚いと言って避けてしまうものです。しかしどんなものにも地球の歴史があり、生命の証があり、美さや儚さが存在しています。もしかしたらそれを感じるためには、あの子供の頃の心と目が必要なのかもしれません。損とか得とか、勝つとか負けることが基準ではない、美しいものを美しいと素直に言える心を失わないために僕は写真を撮り続けます。



When I was young. Have you gathered stone colonies on the river, picked up shells at the coast, and arranged themselves in your room? In case

One day, it was said that adults were "dirty" and "disturbed" and they were thrown away. When becoming an adult, wrong common sense and fixed ideas disturbs, and the truth there is visible.

When I noticed, I was shooting only things that adults did not look for. Nobody will try to see spots and rust on the wall, dead leaves of the park. On the contrary, most people avoid saying it is dirty.

But everything has a history of the earth, there is a proof of life, beauty and transience exist. Perhaps it is necessary to have the heart and eyes when he was that child to feel it.

It is not a standard to lose, to win, to win or to lose, a transparent mind that can say honestly beautiful things beautiful.

In order not to lose such mind I keep taking pictures.

Important things are nearby. It was a trip and a picture that taught it.

After traveling the world, I noticed that the magnificent landscape and surprisingly beautiful sight that I saw all around the world are actually next to my everyday life, so I started photography.

Likewise, when I arrived at the end of the world, I noticed that what is important was not far, but immediately next to it.

As beautiful things and majestic things were nearby, really important people were those who were always next to each other.
