RELATIONSHIP

SHORT LIST

Statement

Here, I sow the seeds

"Intimacy Over Generation"
To depict the bond developed from the relationship between the 80 years apart great grand-daughter and great grand-mother; that desire is the energy which drives me to take photographs.
My grandmother's wrinkled hand covering, as if to accept the days of loss as she ages.
My growing daughter's small hand which she hands out as far as possible to see the wide world.
The moment when these two hands overlap, I feel the relationship between lives.
Everyday, she plows the fields, sows the seeds and waters the plants. The accumulation of my grandmother's humble daily life makes the beautiful flowers bloom. I want to pass on these feelings to my daughter.
