A Gentle Breeze

January 13 – February 27, 2012

Artist’s statement:

The scene is in Okayama, Hiroshima and a small island which is located in the Sea of Setouchi.
Quiet time is passing in this place which has a tranquil climate.

I travel from the city to the island and from the island to the city without thinking about anything as if the wind pushes me forward.

By doing so, I came to the street just like a cat which has lost its way.

Flowers bloom and it sometimes rains. The sea is shining and the port lies restless waiting for returning ships. The sunset brings night.

People who finish the work return their home. Houses grow with small lights.

The day is slowly comes to an end, But tomorrow is a new day. It is a typical day for them. But this is the moment I feel beauty.
I took these pictures so that I never forget.
