..Silent House (2012)

..Silent House was the work I did during my homeless phase at Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. Once in 30 years, the lake’s water level will rise due to heavy rain. The local inhabitants
..are aware of the fact and yet they still build their cabins by the lakeside and face hardships when their homes are submerged. Whether it is idiocy or comical human nature, it
..was deeply intriguing for me. I have often been in such predicaments and I will continue taking photos of these sinking homes.

..Silent Houseは私が放浪生活時代にグアテマラのアティトラン湖で撮った作品です。この湖は30年に一度、大雨などによる天災によって水位があがります。
..住んでいる人々はその事実を知っているにもかかわらず、ついつい湖畔のロケーションの良い場所に家を建ててしまい、水没の憂き目に遭います。
..おろかさや、コミカルな人間の性を興味深く感じて、自分自身にもそういうところが多いにあることに気づかされ、その沈んでいく家を執拗に撮り続けました。
