Kuro-shio (Black Current)
Project info

I never get tired of watching the undulation of waves. The waves roll in as she rise and fall, and make a wavering motion. The shape and line are beautiful and distinct. Through the finder, I chase after the waves breaking against the shore and washing the sand; and I release the shutter. The pictures may seem be still but what I had captured were continuation of wavering. I aimed to condense the situation into photographs.

After I started to live near the sea, I became conscious about the tide. As with the relation to moon, I find it mysterious. I wonder where all the seawater at flood tide goes when it becomes ebb tide.

The title is punned on the strong western boundary current that transports warm, tropical water northward in the northern Pacific Ocean called ‘Kuroshio.’
