The world of Takejiro Hasegawa

Takejiro Hasegawa

2021. 11.6 (Sat) --11.21 (Sun)

One day, when I visited Mr. Takejiro's workshop, he made tea as usual, and then he said, "I have always been wondering. What is in the foreground looks big, What's over there looks small. When I take a picture, the car that's running is stopped but looks like it's running. This is strange and irresistible. I've been wondering why. " The teacher was silent as the people there laughed. Whenever I come across such a scene, I am truly astonished and trembled from the bottom of my heart that such a thing is born because of this person. From a boyish sincere look and exceptional skill as a forger, we see that all the miraculous moments that casually exist in nature are born in front of us in a very lovely sparkle. ..
