“Mao-san, I have these dreams” is what Morika Yoshimura said to me. They are weird and savage and sexy. Hearing them sent shivers up my spine. I said “Morika, let
s turn those dreams into photographs! If you recreate them, Ill photograph them”
“Mao-san, that sounds amazing, Let`s do it!”

This artist collaboration brings to the fore the realms of both dreams and imagination, creating vividly exciting portrayals of the artist's thoughts which step foot into worlds of the absurd and fantasy.
