SPRITE

SAYO NAGASE — SPRITE


たとえば、自然の中を歩いたり夜の海にいると何か気配を感じる、それはなんなのかよくわからないけれど  古代から人間のこういう感覚は現代文明になっても変わっていないのかもしれない。
『SPRITE』は 2011年東日本大震災の直後に撮影し、5年後の2016年に仕上げをした。

私たちは子どもの頃から長い旅をつづけてきている、未知なる世界、
導き手のいない新しい場所に足を踏み入れたときの瞬間を描きたかった。


For example, when you’re walking around in the middle of nature,

or you’re at the beach at night, you might sense something is there.

You don’t really know what it is, but you just know something is there.

This is a sense people have possessed since ancient times,

and although we now live in a modern civilization,it may not have changed at all.I shot SPRITE right after the 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami,
and I completed it five years later, in 2016.

We’ve been on a long journey, through an unknown world, without a guide,
ever since we were kids. I wanted to capture the instants we entered such new places, to portray the moments we first went beyond new boundaries.
