‘My photography is on photography.
I think the photography is the best medium that represents sensibilities of contemporary world. We use photography as language, and we see the world through the photography. Photography is a very familiar thing, at the same time the thing has a strange meaning. My interest is how the photography influences to our lives, and what it means now or how it is changing.
Photography is a lie. It looks like real, but has nothing to do with the truth. It is a selected piece, or an image of reflected and overlapped of various things. It is interesting that the form of the image and the meaning of the media keep changing as time passes and technologies develop.
My work is the process of finding and questioning about this phenomenon. My Studio is a factory producing image, and a laboratory of this process.’
