DIVA

 

No one can stop the flow of time.

Despite of such cruel truth, a photograph can capture the moment for eternity.

By thinking of something while capturing the moment, we may be able to reach the origin of human consciousness.

I am always curious to find out the origin.

On December 2015, I met the freelance model called “mitsuki.”

He was living his own life beyond the boundaries of gender after coming out as transgender.

When I point my camera at him with curiosity for his firm mind, his atmosphere has shifted as if he became a completely different person.

His presence was shapeless and transparent just like the light, air or wind.

I got really into taking photos of him.

While photographing, I came to know that there is a person he admires.

That person’s name is Andrej Pejic, the photo model who has surpassed the sexual boundaries.

 

For mitsuki, as a photo model, and for me, as a photographer, Andrej Pejic is the Goddess of beauty.

Together with mitsuki, we tried to take the portrait photo that “beautiful man can realize” by referencing the photos of Andrej Pejic.

 

It was a great time to learn the magnificence of human existence.

 

I don’t know what I can do for the person with gender issues.

However, I thought that I can change something by taking photos and preserving the presence of the people who are living with their true selves.

 

I wholeheartedly desire that the photographic art saves someone in some place of this world, just like the presence of Andrej Pejic made one man’s life more comfortable.
