About this project

“I have always been interested in the way our memory is tied to the landscape we occupy specially, when we are moving through in-between places. When I began this project, I was on a plane, flying between Japan and Europe, going to visit a loved one on the brink between life and death. My son was also about to be born during the same period.  

So, I began to reflect on this special dimension, suspended between water, sky and earth, as if, in flight, one could experience a new view of the world, observing and greeting life, both for the first and last time.”

Many of the photographs in “Requiem” depict air travel between Europe and Japan: land, air, sea and people seen from above, as well as an emotional state tied to memories seen across two countries and geographical spaces apart from each other.
