One day, when I was processing a digital photograph, I had a lot of light and color coming out of the dark shadows. Changing formats from film to digital led me to look for new possibilities for photography. I had to ask myself, “What is this light?” It was a phenomenon that was unimaginable with traditional film photography. It is said that digital images contain various types of information, and I noticed that I could make completely different images by drawing some of this information out. What I was once doing in the dark room, can now be done with a computer. I can now express intricate colors, lights, and time expressions by extracting this information.
