Going Back Up the River - Ongoing Project -
“Whispering in the Suburbs” was the first chapter in a story about the ‘centrífugal forces’ that have been working on me for the past several years.
Though I’d taken a picture in the center of Tokyo since 2011, the year of the great earthquake disaster,
I got bored of it and felt like I had no suitable place to be there.
I was nearly 60. Besides, the pandemic kept me away from the busy streets.
I started taking pictures in rural areas. It’s a journey to the older layer of Japan.
Chap. Ⅱ of the story has begun.
