■ Not at a crossroads, perhaps.
It’s just like the boundary of the night seems to be ambiguous…
So why not. I’ve been photographing some Night Lives of Tokyo, the hottest spot in peaceful Japan where there is no looting. Although it is a little unscrupulous, as a record of 2020 Japan, the hypocenter of the spread of a new virus is a symbol of a certain kind, so I have to take a picture.
However, even if I take a picture of a normal night, the punch is not enough in my ability. So this time, I tried to limit it to “night of July 23, 2020” which may be held the Olympic Games in one year. I hope you will look at what will happen in a year’s time.
By the way, as you can see, this work is a self-homage of “岐路 (Crossroads)”,2016 . This year, we are doing a project that we redo the past works.
However, I think that we cannot find crossroads of the age so often. Therefore this is not a work depicting the divided roads. It is only the appearance that is separated, and it is actually a gradation. When asked if it was such a black or a black not, I have to finish it in an off-white work.
And I would like to record it by mentioning that it is common to movements that are pressing for black or non-black on the other side of the sea.
