« I am not sure I can explain why I shot those flowers in April 2011.
I am usually interested in people and fashion.
Why did I choose to photograph the inanimate metaphor of life and death ?
I realised flowers have human characteristics. The environnment under which they grow influences how they turn out.
For me, the cotton floating around them reflects that daily personal paradox: my ultra-sweet life in Tokyo and the everyday unseen radioactive threat .
It seems that with this project I may have moved away from my usual depictions of the human form to a symbolic représentation. »
