Bishin Jumonji "Faces"
This event has ended.
Within every part of a human body, face is especially meaningful to me. I could imagine "some kinds of face" by looking at a glance of just three pushpins pierced on the wall. Even out of rough halftone-dot printings, the individual characteristics of each face can be easily detected. It is obvious for me to interpret from one to another. Inside my brain some kind of "peculiar cells" must be existed to react only human faces.
These days I have kept dreaming of taking pictures of someone’s face. What kinds of portrait pictures do attract me? The answer may be integrated as follows: the portrait should have some freedom from absolute moment, and it has to be considered like more important than just depicting a piece of dramatic facial expressions. Furthermore, the most fascinating portraits will be unidentified ones until I shoot them. In other words, there must be no logics to be interfered with.
I sincerely wish to witness such ongoing realism, or the necessity captured in a new direction.
