Sorry, You'll Never Walk Alone

This project is based on main project "Something Here".
Being aware of their own lonely existence, people do not even have time to look at the real figure of themselves through mirror, while they are not able to afford to see the appearance of others that can be comparable either. In order to adopt themselves into the society as well as to become a cog, people are leading their daily lives frantically.
The photographer is trying to through this project sending a message of "you are not alone at all. There must be someone in the society keeping an eye on your struggle for living", in addition to which, it is attempted to express the both side of a socially ironic message as "There is no time for being lonely in this constantly vigorous society. It is even impossible to walk streets with nothing in your hands".
I wish you could feel the "contradiction" between the nature of human being and the essence of the society created by human being, not through the aforementioned commentary, but from the appearance of people in the photo who are living frantically in the realistic world.


Sorry, You'll Never Walk Alone

人々は、己を孤独な存在だと意識しつつも、その己の本来の姿を鏡で確認する時間すらなく、また比較対象となる他人の姿をも見る余裕すらなく、めまぐるしく変化していくこの社会の中に溶け込むため、またその歯車の一つとなるため、それぞれの日常生活を必死に送っている。
このプロジェクトは、「あなたは決して孤独ではない。この社会の中で必死に生きている姿を必ずどこかで見守っている人がいる」というメッセージでもあり、また、「この勢いの止まらない社会の中では、孤独になる時間すらない。何も持たずにたった一人で街を歩くことすら不可能である」という社会風刺のメッセージの両面を表現している。
私のこの解説からではなく、写真の中にいる、世の中を必死に生きてる人々の姿から、人間の本質と、その人間が作り出した社会の本質との「矛盾」を感じてもらえると幸いである。
