Some photos from the new series  I have been working on, titled "EXIT". 

this series is about one emotion and an attempt to escape from it. I would like to talk more about this project when it's complete. 


現在制作中の作品,"EXIT"からの写真

この作品は,ある感情とそこからの脱出を試みる過程。というテーマです。詳しくはこのシリーズが完成した時にまた話させていただこうと思います。

rainland


Recently I have re-organized my old works and added to my website as a series called "rainland".
these are mostly photographed while I went to school in Seattle from 1999~2001. some are taken after I got back to japan and around 2001~2002. they are mostly shot with B&W film with my lovely Nikon, or with the Canon I brought from Japan before I lost it..
I am still looking through huge rolls of my photos from the past so I might add some more to this project later..

昔の作品をまとめ直してホームページに載せました。タイトルはrainland。ほとんどがシアトルに留学していた1999年から2001年の間に撮ったもの、それから帰国してしばらくの間に撮ったものです。そしてほとんどが私の愛機Nikonで撮った白黒か、無くしてしまう前のCanonのカメラで撮影です。

on Swimming





スイミング。このシリーズを撮っていたときはニューヨークの美大に通っていたのですが、あの頃、自分の撮るものが、”思春期”をテーマにしている感じがあって(全然ニューヨークぽくない。)、それは周りの他の学生たちの、高校を卒業して大学に入って、これからどうしよう、的な雰囲気に影響されてたのもあるかもしれないし、わたしは実は彼らより少し年上だったけど、ほんとは自分が思春期的なものにとても惹かれていたからだと思う。思春期的というのは、何かから何かに変わっていく途中にある状態で、不安定で揺れたりする微妙な感じ。夢と現実に境が無い感じ。永遠に続くんじゃないかと思わせておいていつのまにか終わってしまう小さな時間。それにわたしは、人はひとりひとりそれぞれの早さで成長していくと思っているから、一般に考えられてる年齢とか時間の区切りにはあまり意味がないと思ってるので、何歳から何歳が、思春期とか、何歳でみんな大人になるとか、ほんとはそんなのないと思うので、人が、新しい世界に向かっていこうとし続けるかぎり、思春期な部分があるといえるのかなあ。と思ってます。

The Suzan


Photo shooting with The Suzan in New York  2009.

NYで活動中のバンド The Suzanを撮影しました。2009年 NYにて














I met The Suzan back in 2009, my second year as an international student at an Art school in NY. I was temporarily staying at the dorm type hotel in Brooklyn, until I find my new apartment. Then RIE and SAORI came in and we talked. they told me they are in a band and they got here to sign with a label in NY. I told them I was a photographer and we did a photo shooting. since then I hang out with them and they are so fun .

New Video project

 I have been working on a new video project. The tentative title for this is "let go and sleep". The main theme on this project is about letting go of the childhood memories to move on. The movie goes along with a boy and a girl who grew up together, who shares a little secret from the childhood. They realize that to move on with their lives, they need to let go of it. I first started out this project as still photography last summer. After several photo shooting session, I looked at the photographs and thought, these should better be video,since my concept on this project was rather narrative. Then I developed the storyboard and started shooting as a video project. I'm done with most of the shooting and getting into post-production. I am looking forward to finishing all the production and showing this soon.
