secret affinities III

 

During this my third stay I finally began to perceive the journey as a reflection of me. I myself was the journey. What I saw wasn't what I saw but it was what I was. Therefore I saw myself reflected in the world. The world as a projection of myself. I found myself again. I was there waiting for me, but I did not immediately recognize me. I needed time to distinguish my own voice. Slowly the images that i took became less and less japanese and more personal. Not the research for elements in some way representative of japanese culture but the representation of my state of mind through the use of colours and local subjects. This time I was the one to use Japan to express myself, and not vice versa.
