change of life
Project info

My father and my mother divorced.
When I was 3 years old.

When I was 8 years old, my mother was admitted to a psychiatric hospital and
suffering from mania.
At 10, My mother bought a camera.
I stopped attending school when I was 13 years old.

During this time I had very little freedom and feelings in my life.
I could not express the feelings that are reflected in my photographs.
But It was through photography that I ended up being able to express myself.
This mind of mine became free for the first time.
And I could express something to someone through the photographs.

When I was 21 years old, I entered high school and at 22 I moved on to university.
At 25, I first consulted a psychiatrist.
33 years old, During my treatment,
I made photographic work and named it "change of life".

The camera is mysterious.
If you move one finger, Photographs can be taken on the hospital bed,
even in the ambulance, you can document your life and mind.
One piece in a frame of film is reflected scene in the moment.
Pleasure, sadness, smiles, tears and all.

Everything, I want to tell this to those who are in distress, that in life there is change.
Right now, however hard it is.

Always, Let’s live out life together.
This is me and I want to say it though photographs.
