Okinawa (2006~2014)

 沖縄の色彩は鮮やかで深い。島の濃密な空気のせいだろうか。それとも何か目に見えない特別な仕掛けがあるのだろうか。始めて沖縄を訪れてからというもの、私はこの亜熱帯の島々の色彩の深みに魅せられてしまった。以来、私はハッセルブラッドにポジフィルムを詰め込んで、三脚片手に沖縄への旅を続けている。

The colors seen in Okinawa, or Ryukyu islands, which lies near Taiwan and Philippines, are deep and vivid. I assume that such deep color comes out because of the islands’ humidity or its dense air, or with a little help of some invisible beings. I’ve been deeply charmed by such a deep colors of subtropical Okinawa, so I decided to wander around those islands with Hasselblad, loaded with transparency films that emphasizes the vividness of the colors. It’s a hard job to shoot Hasselblad with a heavy tripod under the subtropical sun, but somewhat I love it.
