Statement:

Going out into the world with a camera becomes a mission to find something special.

As I walked through Awaji-shima and drew near my subject, I was able to perceive a sense of
boundary.

It is a boundary I cannot see, but know I cannot cross.

Gazing into the water reveals a place both near and far.

As if the scenery before me was the meeting of life and death.

How easy I can imagine the feeling of falling into the cold water

and the story that would follow.
