Like a song that you suddenly realize you are humming, there is a moment that keeps resurfacing in my mind, time and time again. The scene moves my heart deeply, and has become a memory of emotion that is hard to forget, day by day building up and taking shape. As though a secret sign was marked on the map of life.
A small and square sign, without a story to be told. However, it is nothing more then pretense, because within the little mark, a dark night, and an uncontainable love that only I know are crystallizing. At the same time, individual memories are removed and lose their tangibility, and when I try to focus on them, they whisper to me, "whatever may be, the world is beautiful."
今回のRAIEC SATELLITE TOKYO 2014展で、やっと作品と作家が一致した方もいらしたくらい。それが、在廊時間や設営撤収、合間の飲み会などでじっくりみなさんと過ごすことで、その人となりを知り、改めてなんと素敵な方達ばかりかと感じ入りました。そして、一つの体験を共有し、同じように総合ディレクターの杉山さんの志に賛同して自ら動き、自ら助け合う素晴らしく気持ちの良い10日間となりました。
CHAOS２は、昨年のBWC展でテラウチマサト先生に認めていただき、その後、KAWABA NEW NATURE PHOTO AWARDのファイナリストに選んでいただいものを、さらに発展させた作品でした。御苗場という場所でみていただくにはふさわしいものではないかもしれないけれど、それでも自分なりの展開を提示したい、と考えていたので、評価してくださったことが心にしみました。「おい、それでいいじゃないか、頑張ってやってみろよ。」そんなふうに応援していただいたような気持ちです。なんと心強いことでしょうか。これからの課題はすでに見えているので、さらにひたむきに愚直にやっていくしかありませんね。
I wish all whom I have met a happy new year from the bottom of my heart.
I would really appreciate your continued support this year.
Report of the latter half of 2014
August 29 to 30, Mt. ROKKO INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL, participation in Portfolio Review (selection by advance screening)
I was blessed with beneficial encounters in these 2 days, so it was a golden opportunity for me in an elaborate, intimate atmosphere.
October 2 to 9, a Joint Exhibition (Bright Photo Salon in Hatchobori)
I exhibited 5 pieces of large size prints and 3 small pieces from “CAOS”, which were photographs mainly of riverbeds in Tokyo. I received very good comments for these pieces and had many people appreciate them. It was a joint exhibition from the beginning, but it was a calm environment where the visitor could appreciate our pieces without rushing. Also, it was a valuable step. To those who came, thank you very much again.
October 5, participated in Portfolio Review hosted by IMA (selection by advance screening)
October 26 to November 16, participated in the outdoor exhibition at KAWABA NEW-NATURE PHOTO AWARD as a finalist
My “CAOS” series was selected as an entry for the award, and I exhibited it on a large tarpaulin at Kawaba Denen Plaza in Gunma Prefecture. Unfortunately, I did not win a prize, but I was moved by the beautiful exhibition.
November 21 to 27, MAZELL-BE2, participated in the group exhibition
It was a group exhibition hosted by carrier, a photographers group. I exhibited monochrome street snaps.
December 13 to 21, participated in RPS project workshop.
I participated in the workshop with Justin Maxon as a lecturer at the conclusion of last year. I have started planning a new project. I would like to start this new project this year.
I would appreciate your continued guidance as well as encouragement.
KAWABA NEW NATURE PHOTO AWARD FINALIST選出
栃木県川場町で開催されたKAWABA NEW NATURE PHOTO AWARDのファイナリストに選出されました。選出作品は道の駅川場田園プラザにて大型ターポリンにて展示されます。アワードは後藤繁雄先生、写真家の石川直樹さん、上田義彦さん、飯田裕子さん各氏により決定されますが、ファイナリストが一堂に介してそれぞれがプレゼンするという、大変に有意義なものでした。残念ながら受賞は逃しましたが、得難い経験をさせていただきました。
