Photographer's Note

This photograph was taken in front of hall of the unversity at Shijuku wards in March, this year. Exactly, when it is past 10:00 at the graduation ceremony in the morning on that day, many students have gathered in the hall. Men wear formal suit and women wear traditional clothes(Hakama). Wholly, it's felt to pleasure from their expression. In front of the hall where a ceremony starts, they have taken memorial photograph each other with parent or friends. Especially, a female student's clothes had rich color, and stood out. That these students were born is the time when the bubble of Japan burst exactly at the beginning of Heisei era. And, Japan economic deflation continues up to now from it. Now, contemporary 50% enter to the college since popularization of the college is progressing. And they are a generation who has grown up the inside of the living environment of a game, a mobile phone, and a personal computer etc. Although it is a time of job shortage now, carefree brightness is felt from their expression. When taking a photograph, they draw the pause which makes a V-sign wholly, I will feel that it catches a glimpse of the miniature of a historical backdrop. Although there are an earthquake disaster and economic deflation, since there is potential power which can change dynamically in this country, I believe that the view of the future is bright like a student's expression.
