When I first started photography, I was inspired by sophisticated cityscapes such as Shibuya, Omotesando, and Ginza, and continued to photograph the urban scenes. I was attracted to the glitz and glamor of the big city and incorporated such images in my works.

One day I came to realize that the cutting-edge city has four seasons and reveals to us its spectacular works of art created by the different nuances of sunlight with every season. I began looking at the calm mystical side of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, and now I am fascinated by its evolving expressions of light and shadows.
Whether in the city or a natural environment, half of our day is enveloped in light and shadow. Shadow represents the negative image of light and also the negative image of things. Perhaps gazing at shadows is like looking at existence from behind.
Shadows are transient and change constantly with the breeze and continuous movement of light. At times, however, they express the whispers and cries of existence more eloquently than the actual entity of which they are a reflection. Capturing shadows through the lens may be listening to the murmurs lying dormant within me.
