"I shoot photographs, i.e. archetypal images. (…) Photographs interrupt time and space and fix them on a surface. I capture the dynamic texture of the city. The undulating light and radiance of shadows… I reduce the complexity of “shooting,” “making,” “viewing,” and “contemplating” photographs to light and shadow. (…) I want to create a place where photographs simply exist as photographs. (…) Photographs are not subordinate to the meaning of their subjects. The photograph is the site from which images rise."—Tsukiji Hitoshi, essay in Shashin (写真 / Photograph)
