Seventeen-year Gap

A film frame cannot be fully planned by photograph, moreover the randomness and the chance that makes it special. This series is also a child of chance. This film was first shot in 2006, but at that time I didn’t develop it, and then I forgot that that film had already been shot. In 2023, in an another city, in a different country, 17 years later, I shot on this film again. As a result, some frames feature people who have grown up since then, and people who were not yet born 17 years ago. These shots are the gift from the universe to the photographer.
