Short Hope

“I smoke, every day, a brand of cigarettes called ‘Short Hope’ – not ‘long hope’. It isn’t possible through photography – the act of shooting – to grasp the entirety of the world in one stroke, so day by day, I work with the short hope, and through that I continue to hope to capture the entirety of the world, and to continue to live.”

Takuma Nakahira, ‘Self-Change in the Act of Shooting’, in Setting Sun: Writings by Japanese Photographers.
