Paradise in Off-Street

 

今にも消えてしまいそうなこの路地裏界隈は、私にとってもパラダイスだった。かけがえのない一部分、人ふたりがやっと通れるくらいの細い路地。そこを昔の人たちは一間道路と呼んだらしい。昭和はじめの木造建築の風情がまだ少し残っている。くねくねと曲がりくねった細い道は、まるで迷路のように見知らぬ人を遠ざける。だから、ここは地元の人たちにとり楽園そのものなのだ。

Born in Tokyo. In 1987, I graduated the Kuwasawa Design School where I learned photography and visual design. I worked as assistant for the advertising design office and the photography office while in school. After working as graphic designer and window display designer for the big apparel company, I'm now a freelance photographer. <Solo Exhibition>
