Masanobu Yoshimura Photo Exhibition Afterimage

I like travel places. I’m the kind of person who sees a documentary or movie and then gets the urge to go there, feel and experience it with the five senses. I want to see things I haven't seen before and live that moment in first person.
I got into photography in order to preserve those moments.

When watching movies, I have always been interested in the boundary between what was included in the frames that were composed from bold angles and captured at CinemaScope aspect ratio, and the world outside. I like the landscape format that crops the top and bottom without fear or hesitation.

So, when it was time to print the pictures I took, I thought of printing the afterimage that was still in memory at CinemaScope aspect ratio like a scene from a movie.

I travel. And, time passes by. Taking pictures is what I do, I’m a traveling photographer.
