Description of book: This book is one of the three winners of the “Shashin Book Award 2014″ attributed by “in)(between gallery” Paris, France.
Excerpt from the preface by the artist:
I may have been your great-grandmother.
Your face, passing by me, I know it.
At a certain point in time, I began to think there are no unrelated people in this world.
I feel as if I had been taught this by my daughter who had never been born into this world,
and by the death of friends who have died too soon.
As we engage in our lives, each of us who live as individual existences will,
at a certain moment, come across each other suddenly.
When we do, all proper names will be stripped away and we all become “I”,
just one of the number of people in the world. At the root of life that breathes in the depths of
each of us, we will feel that we are all directly connected.
When in a large crowd of people, I vanish.
Within the “countless I’s”, the “big I”.

The best thing about self-publishing: That I can realize my feelings and preferences.
