As Yumeji Painted His Beloved Woman:
I took portraits of my newly born third daughter Hikono with my favorite photobooks in my shelf from one week old when she was brought home from the hospital till one month old when she got the doctor's approval to going out after the one month/first health checkup. Making me imagine as if my daughter was taken a photograph from those photographers... refraining Yumeji Takehisa painting his beloved woman Hikono Kasai.
This is the only communication I found for her and me, and I believe with the world was by taking portraits of her. I have accompanied favorite photobooks from my bookshelf because I truly see as the possibility of a child is limitless.
What kind of future will my daughter have?
Thinking that every children has infinite possibilities and every directionality while I was taking these portraits.

夢二が最愛の女性を描いたように:
1月26日に三女彦乃が産まれた。彼女が病院から戻ってきた生後1週間から、一ヶ月検診で外出許可が出るまでの間、本棚から取り出したお気に入りの写真集の被写体と娘を重ね合わせてポートレイトを撮影した。竹久夢二が最愛の女性笠井彦乃を描いたように、著名な写真家が同じように娘を撮ったなら・・と想像しながら。
外に出られるまでの日々、そしてその小さな姿から感じた「可能性」を記録するため、私は娘とのコミュニケーションにこれを選んだ。
娘にはこれからどのような未来が待ち受けているのか?
そんな気持ちと同時に、全ての子供達はあらゆる方向性と、また無限の可能性を秘めているということをこの撮影の中に見ていた。
