ステイトメント/Statment


「何か、したい」と「どこかへ、行きたい」


私は、女の子たちの “欲望” が好きだ
いつだって欲望が女の子を「どこか」へ連れて行ってくれる
純粋な欲望、そして未知への好奇心から、瞳孔が開いて光を反射した真っすぐな視線がレンズ越しに向けられる

「何が」したいかは分からないけど、「何か」がしたい

何かわからない「何か」を追いかけて一緒に走りたい
たとえば、きれいな女の子がきれいな色のドレスで、街を全速力で駆け抜ける
細くてしなやかな髪の毛が揺れて、太陽の光をうけて素肌のうぶ毛がキラキラ光る

走れば、そこはジャングルであり草原であり、幕の上がった舞台の上に立っている

いつも「どこかへ行きたい」と思っている

どこか分からない「どこか」のための小さな冒険を
いつも通る街の中で、何百回も何千回も通り過ぎる街の中で
いま住んでいる部屋で、朝の海辺の澄んだ空気に包まれて
何をする?やりたいことは何でもいいよ?
好きな服を着て、着てる服を脱いで
何でもいいんだよ

私はとくに、きれいな女の子たちが好きだ
きれいなことは、とても重要だ
もしくは、自分はきれいだと知っている女の子
あたりまえに、ただ美しい

私と、美しい女の子たち
彼女たちとのひとときの逃避あそび、その大切なかけがえのない瞬間の記録写真なのです

'I feel like doing something,' and 'I want to go somewhere.'


I like the 'desire' that girls have.
That desire eventually will take a girl 'somewhere'.
Out of pure desire and curiosity of the unknown, their eyes are wide open and looking straight ahead at me with the light reflecting off them.

I don't know 'what' I want to do, but I want to do 'something'.

I want to chase after that something I don't know with them.
For example, a pretty girl in a colorful dress is running about town at full speed.
Her fine shiny hair sways back and forth, and her peach fuzz on her skin sparkles in the sunlight.
As she runs, she's crossing a jungle or a field; she's standing on a stage and the curtain is up.


I'm always thinking that there's 'some place I want to go.'

It could be anything. I don't care.
I just want to wrap myself in clear blue morning skies along the coast and turn that I-don't-know-where 'somewhere' on the streets I take everyday, the areas I've crossed hundreds if not thousands of times, and my flat where I'm living right now into a short adventure.
It could be dressing up in something I like and then taking it off.
Anything is fine.

I am particularly fond of pretty girls.
It is very important that they be pretty.
It's OK if they know they are pretty.
That's a given. But, they must be beautiful.

These photos capture priceless moments of beautiful girls playfully escaping from reality for just a short amount of time.
