Your photos are simple, clean and capture details often missed. Why do these details draw your eye?
My eyes cannot recognise everything. Photos are not captured by a human’s eye but by a camera. The camera mercilessly and precisely records the vision in front of me, even if my eyes cannot recognise it. I shoot vertically so that the whole area comes into focus as sharply as possible. This is because I am so aware that the photography is two-dimensional. In other words, I can say that the photography is to control the two-dimensionality by the focus position and diaphragm. I walk and walk and take photos. I can list some things in a symbolic way: light, shadow, horizontal and vertical lines, many layers, colours, geometrical patterns, etc. They are complexly connected with each other and my eyes respond to what is visible there.
