TOUCH

SHORT LIST

Statement

Too fragile to touch, but too tempting to

"Too fragile to touch, but too tempting to"

Our child-parent relationship can be fragile, when I touch and hug my son too strongly just because I love him.
For most of the people reading this statement, it may sound weird, but we are living in a culture where people don’t show off their love often to others.

Therefore, I just want to convey my love to him through photography ー“an untouching but gentle gaze”
