2003年、僕が20歳になったとき、父親は自殺した。その年は今までで最も多くの人が自殺でなくなった年で、当時父親は59歳だった。それから時間が経ち、僕は11年分の年をとった。記憶は部分的に拡大・縮小され、より簡潔なものに変化している気がした。時間的にも感情的にも確実に距離は11年分生じ、事実は横に引き延ばされている。
度々蘇ってくる個人的な記憶と記号化し断片化した父的存在を、僕は写真を用いて一つの文脈の上で再現しようとしている。すでに失われてしまった存在が記号化されてしまってもなお、一つの総体として再現されるという可能性の模索を実践しようと思った。
このたたき台で僕はその感覚を体にしみ込ませて、写真的研究という目的へと向かおうと考えている。

When I became 20 years old, my father died by suicide in 2003. The white paper from the Japanese government about suicide ratio say, the biggest number of people died by suicide in the year since the statistics had started. And my father was 59 then. I’ve got 11 years of age since then. My memory about my father was reconstructed with its expanding/reducing partially. The time elapse appear to me as the physical and mental distance from the point of death.
I’m attempting to combine both my personal memory and the transformed information as the fragmented code like numbers on the statistics or photographed image. Several Expanded/reduced images trimmed from a photograph of my father are represent the sense of a reality about memory fragmented or transformed. I am also attempting reconstruction of my father’s existence here. Each images function as metaphor to indicate the connection of each different point spatially and temporally. And the expanded/reduced image trimmed from a photograph of my father is represent the sense of a reality about memory of the loved one.
I would like to use the photograph to generate the alternative possibility based on my physical reality that seemed to be authentic depend on my personal relationships. I’m not trying to tell the reality itself. I’m talking about the question “what is the reality?”
This is a starting up my photographic study about what the function of images on the photographs.
