Unnatural Beauty

Mankichi Shinshi's statement

Sometimes, I feel something wrong with our quiet daily life. I feel weirdness to that the world regain order, whatever happens. I feel the existence of a huge system, and I realize that here is a part of nature, even if surrounded by concrete. Everyone is living as an animal for the prosperity of the species and they will repeat forever for the future. I am afraid of them. However, I also encounter occasionally the scene that makes me aware of that I am a human being. It’s an “unnatural scene” that tell me that “human beings are the farthest from nature”. To record such a scene, I carry a camera with me. I will never deny animals and plants. But, I feel that I need to draw a border line in somewhere to confirm my own contours.
