The Other Side of the Window by Kazuhei Kimura

What did I want to do with this book, I wonder? It’s certainly not to keep myself always on the lookout to capture a particular moment, nor to create a setting for ideal pictures. I’m not eagerly pursuing a totally new mode of expression either. I react to scenes which I unavoidably come across in everyday life, such as communicating with others, time that doesn’t seem to move, a shadow that sways, or a ray of frozen light. I fix my eyes on them and release the shutter. Is it a record of life? Maybe not.
I feel great interest in and attachment to my childhood memories, as well as the everyday life that I’m living. The former makes a unique album, whereas the latter is for an album-to-be, for which I’m in charge of selecting everything. I choose where to live, what to eat, how to wear and whom to get along with. I could get off the train at an unfamiliar station. I could dance with cats.
Countless choices and experiences create a particular person, one who resembles no one else. Everyone has a collection of unique episodes, and I’ve been deeply moved by the texture of such episodes that live on in artistic productions such as clothes, movies and music. Although private in origin, they are pliable, they have a certain transferability. The good productions strike a chord in us and show us a vision of the unknown. That is what I want to do with photography.
