Hong Kong, Japan

2019年逃亡犯条例に反対する民主化デモが起こる前夜の香港にて撮影。

香港を旅した時に見た風景は、昔夢で見たような懐かしさがあった。小さな島にひしめき合う高層ビルの下に広がる商店街や市場。未来的でありながら時間が退行するような佇まいの街。日本に帰国しニュース動画を見ると、その街に火炎瓶が飛んでいた。風向きに合わせて世界や人はすぐ変わる。自分が見ていたものは夢だったのか?普段の生活と一枚壁を隔てた先にある微かなゆらぎを拾い集めた。

Shot on the eve of the 2019-20 Hong Kong protests broke out. The scenery I saw during my trip to Hong Kong was nostalgic, like something I had seen in a dream a long time ago. The shopping streets and markets stretched under the skyscrapers in the small island. The city is very futuristic but also has the atmosphere where time is regressing. After returning to Japan, I saw the news videos showing many Molotov cocktails were thrown around in the city. People and the world changes easily in accordance withthe way wind blows. Was it the dream that I saw in the city? I collected small fragments of feeling on the other side of the wall next to our daily life.
