Photographs transcend space-time.

They are exits and entryways for energy that connects their subjects with people and with space.

Accordingly, I assume the role of an invisible pipeline in this, capturing and communicating single glittering instants of life,

making a shared theme of the act of imbuing innate love and harmony into the viewing person and the embellished space.

When each person’s unseen heart commands a bird’s-eye view of the creation or destruction of this three-dimensional world,

thoughts turn to contemplation of the true nature of art.

My hope is to continue creating works that evoke the magnificence and courage of giving life to the “now” as one fragment of nature.

Shin-ichiro Sawano
