Previously featured in Thisispaper, Japanese photographer Shin Noguchi shares his point of view on simple everyday moments once again.
In previous project Nonverbal Space, Shin used photographic medium to visualize a sense of Japanese Ma, an unusual and unstable feeling, which at certain moments everyone experiences. His latest project, titled Something Here, is an attempt to reflect Mark Twain's words, „truth is stranger than fiction,” and to prove their truth.
The artist expresses his thoughts on the presented body of work saying: "People are living life desperately. Sometimes lonely, sometimes helping each other, sometimes crying, sometimes laughing.
I captured people going about daily life because there are moments, that they do not realize are more beautiful and full of a human touch than the carefully choreographed movies of Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini or Shakespeare's plays. I want to share these beautiful moments with other people and, at the same time, I want them to understand that these extraordinary moments exist in our daily lives and they can happen anywhere and at any time. I'm here, just here. You're here, just here. There is something here, something beautiful something special. It may last but a moment, but we are always connected to each other. I want you to feel that when you see my work. You are not alone. There is always someone in the world keeping an eye on your struggle.”
