INFORMATION: EXHIBITIONS: SELECTIONS FROM THE SERIES, IN MY COURTYARD
Thank you Mr. Takahashi for inviting me to Tokyo to exhibit my work, Marika Ryu for translating and Mr. Yoshi Higa for the introduction.
The images began when I lived in an old converted firehouse with a courtyard where the horses were once washed and fed. There were a few plants in the ground and window boxes, but mostly concrete. I watched plants grow, planted my own and experienced their and my personal transformation.
As plants grow and flowers bloom, so do people. When I need inspiration, I surround myself with wonderful people, flowers and plants and observe their growth and blossoming.
I hope you enjoy the images!
