Prayer

今回は、友人に「宗教画」というテーマで絵をお願いしていたので、その制作過程を撮影した。このテーマで絵をお願いした理由は、私は、絵を描く/写真を撮るという行為が「祈り」であると感じていて、それを写真に収めたかったから。
絵を描く/写真を撮るという行為は、自分の身近な大切な人、見ず知らずの遠くの誰か、そして此処にはいない「あなた」というそれぞれの存在と、内的に一致する働きであると思っている。
それは祈りとよく似ていて、例えば一度も会ったことのない人、そしてこれから先も会うことのないであろう人を愛したいのならば、それは祈りを通してしか成せないと思うから。しかしこれには物凄いエネルギーを要し、自ら諸共壊れていくような苦痛と同時に、心地よさがあるように感じる。

 
 
This time, I asked a friend to paint with the theme of “religious painting,” so I took a picture of the production process. The reason I asked for a picture on this theme was that I felt that the act of drawing / taking a picture was a “prayer” and I wanted to capture it.
I think that the act of drawing / taking a picture is a function that internally matches the existence of an important person close to you, someone far away from you, and “you” who is not here. There is.
It’s a lot like prayer, because if you want to love someone you’ve never met, and someone you’ll never meet, you can only do it through prayer. However, this requires tremendous energy, and at the same time, it feels comfortable as well as the pain of breaking each other.

I had a blue bird tattoo on my friend’s chest.
Where you can’t tell unless you wear light clothes.
She said she wanted to believe something because she had nothing to believe in herself.
The bird flapping on her chest can only be seen by herself and the people she cares about.
I think there is a reason to put a tattoo on each person
She took a picture of her She has various reasons, but she all makes sense to her
I thought she was very dazzling.
She is not given to anyone to protect or cherish herself.
She only chooses and makes herself.
