A photo of a boy taking a South Indian goose for a walk in a herd 1987


The studio I worked for at the age of 23 went bankrupt.
I thought this was a good opportunity, so I bought a camera and 300 films.
I packed it in the back and went to India to shoot.

Everything I see is so intense that I can’t do anything for the first few days and spend a lot of time.

As I got used to it, I felt the human power that I had never seen before.
What is it? I keep taking pictures of the people I meet while thinking.

I learned the strong vitality and attraction of human beings here in India.

Daily routine

Wake up in the morning and eat for breakfast and lunch.

After that, take a rickshaw (bicycle taxi) and
Ask them to run 5 rupees as they like.

Have them drop off when they run 5 rupees.
After that, I take pictures while walking toward the inn.

It was a daily routine at that time.

Reverse dejavu

After I was 50 years old, I started dreaming about this photo from time to time.

Indian 1987 work


In India, there are many moments when people synchronize with the landscape.

the next day

After taking this photo, it was hit by heavy rain.
It continues to fall until dawn.

It rained in the afternoon, and when I went there again, it turned into a lake.
Auntie, I wonder if it was okay …
I was worried for a moment.
