早川知芳 / HAYAKAWA Tomoyoshi
In all of my daily activities, I always try to “verify with my own eyes and ears”. I always try to observe and listen to what I hear and see first, without regard to the evaluations and values of others, and on this basis I seek my own interpretation and make judgments.
My approach to photography is also the same, starting with confronting the phenomenon in front of me, photographing it, accumulating and examining it, and after the repetition of this process, I repeat the process of finding something. The process of increasing the purity of a vague image, that’s how I approach photography.
My solo exhibition ‘Sea of Silence Mare Tranquillitatis’, held in May 2018, is a document of an Anglers, a gateway to the ‘JISSO (reality)’ that I finally glimpsed after 12 years of photographing. As an anglers, I will continue to consider human beings through fishing as my life’s work. As a photographer, I will continue to focus on all of human activity, not only anglers, but also all of human life.
