--------------- Portraits in November
When I take a picture of a person, I first look around myself and Intuitively decide who you want to meet. I "choose" a person to shoot. People with strange and popping expressions in 2012, People who laugh with a slightly dangerous look in 2014, In 2016, people who feel a strong will in a quiet expression I'm shooting a portrait. When I choose, I don't know why I want to shoot those people. But when I went to see him, had a conversation, and developed the photos I took, There are some similarities between them. I feel like I was at that time. This is like myself, taken in November.

My work for "COMMON LUNGUAGE".
My self portrait was sold by exhibision"生活"(mean "life") at Cale, December 2018. That exhibision was quait hard for me, because I worked as a busy full-time job worker and I went to shooting to far at weekend. It meand, I should had to face to current my status and life time, more and more. When a day close to end of work production, I shooted self portrait few times. I hardly shoot own usually. And framed that I most favorite. It was very surprised that the portrait was sold first time at the exhibition, because I expected that the one is hardly to sell. But I wonder it was the one most reflect my life. Photography is interesting, There reflect the fact, if we intented or not.

This morning, I met my old friend in my dream. I asked to her "What are you doing now?" then she said with smile, "I work as part-time-job. And, nothing change." Actually, I don't know what she doing now. Because we had not been met for about ten years. But she was beautiful, as old-time. 3rd November, 2019
