Tokyo Toilets, germs or what else?
Well, the truth is that shooting inside a Toilet helps to better understand who I am, Woman, Partner, Mother…
The Camera is like a protective shield and at the same time a magnifying glass pointed on strangers.
When I walk in the streets, I observe people and I take pictures of them, I have the privilege to see them and that portrait I take becomes my gift.
It has been a bit of time since the distance between me and the person I photograph has become unbearable, I really need to get close to be an active subject in this process. I need to question what I see and who I am, I need the person I photograph to be fully aware of what is happening and I need to be part of that photograph.
The Toilet is a small, intimate, equal, raw, naked environment.
It is the perfect environment for this process of comparison, sharing, reception, acceptance and observation.
It is the perfect environment for what I want to photograph right now and to enter, first of all, into the process of my photography in a new guise, which does not exclude what it has been, but which enriches it with a process of self-critical growth.
