The word “texture” has a double meaning; that is “surface of skin” and “components that make up skin.” It seems that there is difference in vision depends on what one would like to see mainly or from where one see the subject. Individuals exist one by one separately. And each individual has relation to others; also it is a component that makes up others.
“When I saw rough surface of wall or concrete block with stain and felt atmosphere of materials, the word ‘texture’ which was deep in my mind came up,” said Yabumoto. Through photographing texture of wall, concrete block, etc, she observes subjects and tries to recognize relation between one and others as well as time and distance between the present and the past.
