THEME #19Winners2021JAN





I have come to express myself using light and color in the same way people have used seasonal words in their Haiku in the past. In addition to the psychological and visual effects, I was also interested in the images of colors. We live in an age where the feelings of each individual vary depending on the environment in which they grew up, their memories, and even the colors of the symbol. Still, I wish to express who I am. When I was younger, I used to appeal to people with my looks, words, and actions, but now that I am in my 30s, I no longer do that or want to do that. Because of this, I have also started to take more photos. I do not think of photography as an emotional output, but I believe that it serves a similar function since it captures aspects of me that even I am not familiar with. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my works with everyone.
