One day, I pondered, how did people without language or text communicate and express their thought ?
I wondered, is it only natural that an illiterate society suffered great difficulties intransmitting thoughts ?
But despite the trouble,the will was even stronger and residing within that will,regardless of time, nation or nationality,is the truth.
Japan until around the fifth century was an illiterate material culture society.
I dive deep into my consciousness to search the motives of our ancestors’ desires, letting the artifacts and their beauty guide me as they wish.
The message that survives death, decay and destruction: the truth is in the objects.
I believe that my mission is to photograph the truth, thereby immortalizing it with an eternal life.
Archaeological works I have photographed include stone burial chambers and tombs.
By capturing how our ancestors perceived the most feared fate of everyman(death)I begin not to conceptualize life but to experience it.
