Mariko:
In the solitude of my creation I feel free and connected to the natural world. Through the camera, I catch glimpses of the essence of life, the truth of my experience, a record of the transient beauty of nature. I want to capture a fleeting moment, turn a thought into something tangible, something understandable. Using light, gesture,
and color I contemplate memory, whimsy, grace, and dreams. These photographs are the product of time spent traveling through the Oregon countryside. The patterns and textures of the land, sky, and the human body juxtapose reality and fantasy, allowing ordinary moments in the day to become mysterious and enchanting. Imagining how a bird dances through the delicate spring sunlight or explores the crunch of a late-season snowfall, I hold a performance with nature that mirrors the emotional response brought on by the combination of raw elements. In this way, I record my sliver of reality, exploring and rearranging the world around me, leaving an impression though the landscape remains unchanged at the end of the day.

White:
White is emptiness. It is the mirror that shows us the deep quiet inside ourselves, the solitude that exists in our lives, and our ever-present desire to fill it. We look for things to take us away from the present – signs of the human presence, a story that has been written and then washed away. We try to find an escape by following the fence, searching for the homestead, finding a reference point that will lead us back to the world we know. Yet with each step, we sink more deeply into ourselves. We find space and peace by accepting the unknown and pausing, even briefly, to remember ourselves. Be still. Breathe. See the light. Color. Shadows. Look deeper. Begin again.
