This event has ended.

The first step in Masumi Ishida’s career as a photographer was when she realized that her days at a girls junior high and high school, where she and her friends spent so much time together without ever changing classes, would soon come to an end, and she began to photograph those days with a crazy craving. This work was published in January 2018 after editing a huge collection of photos.

The momentary brilliance recorded therein was also the light in the memories of the viewers themselves, who knew that something would end someday, or that it had already ended. Recapturing the days of the past through the words and gazes of the many people who came into contact with them became a light that illuminated Ishida’s own hesitation at the thought that a special time had ended, and led to her current work as a photographer.
