I have been involved in advertising photography for a long time. Taking a photo shoot on request can be achieved by improving your technique and aesthetic sense, as well as applying the techniques you have experienced in the past. On the other hand, in my private life, I seek out things that I have never tried before, and I try to create works that feature female nudes set in a fantasy setting, and I ask people I want to take portraits of me using my own lighting and present them. I came here. Additionally, four years ago, I was able to hold an exhibition that was the culmination of my 45 years of work as an advertising photographer. I received the request for this photo exhibition at a time when I could not find anything to follow after the culmination. It was also the time when the new coronavirus infection began to spread around the world, and while I was thinking about it even more, I came up with the idea of returning to the origins of photography. When I looked around my surroundings from the simple perspective of light and shadow, color and shape that make up a photograph, I discovered that there were many photogenic things full of light on the ordinary ground, walls, windows, etc. that I had overlooked until now. I would like to transform the cigarette butt-like photographs of my beloved Irving Penn into art. With this in mind, I enjoyed wandering around the city alone with my camera, and the extraordinary daily life of the coronavirus pandemic turned into a creative day.
