In April 2011, I had a traffic accident. My car was ruined but I was, fortunately, unharmed. When it happened, I thought my life would come to an end there and then, but the following day, I woke up and looked outside– the cherry trees were in full blossom. I was absorbed in taking photos of them. After that, I couldn't capture the cherry blossoms for five years. In Spring 2015, something made me want to capture them again. I removed the camera lens from the body and put some cherry flowers inside, which resulted in an image completely out of focus – a beautiful pink-colored photo. It seemed to leave an expression of the shapeless world of color. I named this method "NOLENS" – used to show the colors of things like flowers, leaves, rice fields, lakes, etc..
