I often observe familiar townscapes and roadside. I realize that there are lots of life in places no one notices.
Generally speaking it was a kind of garbage. All of them, things with form are certainly disappearing, things with life are definitely going to die.
When I captured the last figure in the photograph, I decided to freeze the time and to keep it forever. I think that staring at the shade is equivalent to accepting the preciousness of life.
I stared straight, and also I made a stage right then and photographed with the sunlight. I wanted to photograph even the soul. Eventually they became my precious treasures one by one as “Collection”.
