GRAND PRIX

Statement

the vacant house

I found a house. The house has no nameplate, the duck tape has sealed the post box. It is clear no one is living here. You can't even get in. I used to think that an abandoned house was a place that had fallen out of time, but in this house, time definitely exists. I tried to express the paradox of an abandoned house that is still alive.

Received the Japan Photo Award in 2019. I take a walk as I look around for that space between the real and unreal.

Jury selection

The theme is "change¨ and I think that the photographer made a strong sequence of photos. The same composition as a rhythm. The change in the photos of the inside scenery that the overgrowing plant is alive and changing. The photographer still came back to this scenery and photographed the change. Capturing this in a strong and simple way make these photos a beautiful changing rhythm. It is a joy to look at and for me, the winner of all the other photographers in this contest!
