My photograph-making process begins within the pages of a journal. First, I write, research, and sketch at length until images become salient in my mind. Then, working alone in my studio, I select sound and music to perform and capture vignettes in this narrative.
I title the pieces with numerological hints to deeper personal meanings behind each image. The series title references my birth name. I print the photographs on Kōzo washi (Mulberry paper) for the duality of its delicate appearance yet notably strong fiber.
