The Moment of Change is the Only Poem by Himitsuhana
Sad photos can afford profound opportunity for interpretation, is she sad? is she sleepy? Is it a look of forlornness or heartbreak? The title could allow our interpretation to be guided somewhat, ‘The Moment of Change is the Only Poem’ perhaps the book she holds she hoped held the answers to questions she had. Questions about change, progression, discovery. So maybe the book is a book of poems that never held the answers and in a period of disconsolation with the book slipping away from her hands the pages drift away and destroy themselves as redundant articles. Is the answer to her worries only to be found in the feelings and transitions within change? Alternatively it is a picture with her dog?
Himitsuhana started research in photography in 2007. She investigates the inner relation between photography and painting, and takes inspiration from the Pre-Raphaelites painters and Liberty style. She has worked as designer for storybooks, fashion and entertainment sectors. "I believe that photography is more than technique, it is more than having an expensive equipment. I am deeply convinced that photography (the way it means to me) is not the camera, it is the eye that stands behind the camera. My aim is to portray every single glance of the human soul and encourage people to dream and never stop believing in dreams."
