情念 / Emotions

忘れられない出会いと別れを心に秘めている人は少なくないはずだ。私もその一人で、忙しい毎日を過ごしていても、消えることなく、いつも変わらずに心の奥深くに存在する想いがある。
私にはかつて辛い状況の中、無条件に支えてくれた大切な人がいた。
その人との別れはある日突然に訪れた。これからは私が支えていこうと思った矢先の出来事だった。このときから、私には伝えられなかった想いが残された。
強い悲しみに襲われ、暗闇にいるような気持ちになった。そのなかでの光が写真を撮ることだった。シャッター切る瞬間だけは無心になれ、被写体と向き合う時間が私を癒してくれていた。そうしているうちに私が写真を撮っているのは、心の奥底に溜まっている想いを形にするためなのだと気付くことができた。
言葉にできない想いも、写真なら伝えられる。そう確信したことで私の心は救われたように思えた。大切な人に伝えるために、誰かの心残りを癒すために、私はこれからも写真での表現を続けていく。

I think quite a number of people hold inside unforgettable encounters and farewells. I also cherish unforgettable memories. Even I keep being busy in my daily life, the thought always stays deep in my mind and will never vanish.
I once had someone special who had supported me unconditionally. He was there for me through my ups and downs.
Suddenly he was gone. I was so shocked that I couldn't accept it. I thought it would be my turn to repay him for what he had done for me. But it just happened all at once. Since then my regrets and thoughts that I couldn't tell him have been remained in my mind.
The melancholy devastated me and I felt completely alone and lonely. Only when I take pictures, do I feel happiness. It is a ray of hope in my life. As I am deeply absorbed in the object, I can be free when I release the shutter. Through the moment that I face the object, I feel emotionally recovered. Gradually I get to know the reason why I take photographs. I take pictures for expressing my thoughts that I hold in the depth of my heart.
Even though I can’t express in words, I can tell how I feel and think through the photographs. When I’m convinced so, my heart seems saved. I will keep taking pictures to express my thoughts and want to heal those who hold regrets and sorrows.
