I feel vaguely guilty when I brazenly say “I’m happy,” because I’m afraid of being laughed at.
In a present time affected with such an atmosphere, the many instances of vitality concealed in the everyday suddenly stop me in my tracks.
My heart pounds at the contrast of light and shade streaming through a crack in a nondescript window. I perceive a forceful energy from a tiny flower on the roadside.
These are precious sparkles everyone has in the fleeting moments of their days. I want to gaze at these with tiny tenderness.

I have high expectations for this artist in the future after seeing this relaxed, unrestrained work. The photos speak honestly from an emotional foundation, without a sense of where the artist is headed. From the viewer’s side, too, there is a strength that delights because of the frankness with which it is communicated.
