spectre (2019-2021)

Light is indispensable to photography, and we scrutinize the subject from its light and darkness. Therefore, black-and-white photography is a matter of course as a photograph even without colors. Then, do we recognize it as a photo even if we see a photo that has lost its original light and darkness? To answer the question, I've attempted to reconstruct the images by repeatedly assigning random color gradients to the light and dark of the photographs.

sediments (2017-2019)

I’ve photographed buildings reflected on rivers in urban areas. If you touch an actual building, you can feel its temperature, texture, and mass. However the building reflected on the surface of the water can be seen, but it does not actually exist.
