“When I take my reflections or shadows, I somehow feel personal consciousness. Photographs are reflections of selves even if there would not be selves in finders. My answer to a question: photography is a mirror or a window? is that photography is a unity of a mirror and a window.

Is Photography a medium to reflect society or self? Both are involved, I think.”
