I have a picture of me, 26 years ago, at the age of 16, stored in my phone.
I found and duplicated a photo taken 26 years ago a few years ago. Scrolling through my camera roll, I occasionally see this photo.
In other words, I carry my own 26-year-old image with me at all times, without being particularly conscious of it.
Like anyone else, there are some things that we keep with us for years.
In my case, it is in and out of my phone.
I take pictures of the materialized me of that time reflected in my phone and the things I have carried with me since that time, and justify my ridiculous self in the name of taking pictures.
Born in Okinawa.
I present mainly portraits.
I continue to attempt to see Okinawa by capturing the people standing in front of me as they are.
Review by Kimi Himeno, Director of Akaaka Art Publishing
It is interesting how it handles the existence of the past self gradually collected in the smartphone. I still feel possibilities in the way these may manifest.
