Yoshi Sugitatsu, "Untitled" from the series "The Town with Soap Bubbles", gelatin silver print, 15x15".

Statement

When I was a kid , I loved to daydream. I liked to escape from reality. My daydreams were always traveling in my fantasy world. I created my fantasy worlds from fairy tales. The Soap Bubbles series is a recreation of my daydreams. I use the soap bubble as a metaphor for myself, traveling through my fantasy world. I am still escaping from reality.
