Entry Description

The image produced by the machine that is a camera is an aggregate of things that actually exist, and my mind always goes back to the idea of recording of facts as for the maximum role of the photography. My consistent theme from such an idea is "Record of the Cityscape”. Especially I am interested in the shape of people in the street, the combination of the buildings, the play of light and shadow and the coexistence of plants, small animals and people etc. If the age and the place are different, some of these might be the same, but others might give us an unexpected discovery. It would be difficult to look at a daily life. But when I get a chance to review a daily life by taking photographs, I get an indescribably refreshing feeling. In addition if the person who sees my photos gets such feeling by chance too, I would be so happy myself.
