Reason for Existence
As for the freelance models I met, they are all mentally tough and beautiful.
They don’t belong to a certain person, being obsequious to society and peddle their private time.
They are all great artists with solid confidence who throw themselves into the midst of emotional turbulence as the photo model.
It is just like the endangered animals that represent vulnerable but strong existence.
From my own intuition, I can give them my trust.
Not only that, I am always thinking that freelance models should be regarded as the being with totally different value from traditional photo models working for business purpose.
Not as the one with the business value, but as the one with the “presence” that can reflect the inner self of the creator.
The photographic artists including myself are always looking for photo models, but only few people respond to our requests.
Even so, the inspiration of new art always comes from the communication and interaction among people just like the photographic expression.
The freelance photo models with no restriction whose characteristics are the freedom itself are buried deep in stillness and silence.
For me, the first step for photographic artist is to sense and find out the sound of existence of such photo models which is yet to be heard.
