I see photography as a fragment. For this series, I gathered fragments of Tokyo. They are simply ‘fragments.’ Tokyo is a big city and it’s not my hometown. I am actually from Osaka and I do feel very isolated here, but I guess it is probably the case for many people. Photography captures the object and at the same time reveals the photographer himself. So this story is pretty much about isolation. I wanted to look at the city where I am living and find out more about myself, so I went out and photographed everything I saw. And also this series is homage to Jacob’s I, Tokyo.
