What is it that you said?
by Shun Ikezoe

On March 28, 2020, the Governor of Tokyo told us to, "Refrain from going out unnecessarily," and I had to cancel a scheduled shoot. The next day, snow fell unseasonably and within a few days there was no trace of it. Two years ago, my mother went into a deep slumber and has not yet woken up from her dreams. The Chinese man across the street is dreaming and shouting again tonight. My apartment became the center of my universe and I fought more with my girlfriend who lives with me. I rolled my camera and listened to the sounds around me. I heard the words that came from the faraway you and the nearby you. What is it that you said?
