Shinya Fujiwara is a leading cult Japanese photographer, born in the 1940’s who spent most of his adult life exploring different continents. ‘Colors' contains photographs from his time in America and displays models lying elegantly in a forest near Seattle, dressed in kimonos with coloured threads draped over their naked bodies.

l am not interested in the future and l don’t believe in it. First of all, l am not trusting the future. l don’t even believe in myself in tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. l know me, in the present, who is dragging the past, that’s all l know. That’s all l understand. To say it nicer, the people in the present are standing beside a window, between the past and the future and keeping the balance and living there. But in my case l’ve rather always wanted to get older as quickly as possible and finish it all, just as quickly. For me, what is coming is the end. l don’t feel that something will begin in the future.

“I thought I was the strongest of all, but I feel embarrassed at myself that simply fell into a miserable state and crumbled apart endlessly, and feel sorry to the many people who cheered me on. During the time that I revert back into my old self, I thought about many things. Although it’s said that pain is a part of youth.. I think it would also be nice if we could have more time to be hurt.”
