Rieko Honma

Born in 1978, in Niigata, Japan

I always liked to take photographs since my childhood.
I found it fascinating that things you were looking at in that split second through the viewfinder would turn into a photograph.
It is quite recent that I picked photography as means of expression. It has been since I started using Nikon single-lens-reflex camera, and I have been mainly photographing people as subjects.
I learned photography and how to use equipment on my own, and mostly asked my family members or close friends to be models.
However, I have never been able to create photographs of ‘happy families’, social issues, documentaries and such themes.
For me, photography has been means to escape from the reality.
I wanted to give shapes to things such as unrealistic things, feelings, and things that exist but shapeless and invisible.
Many of photographs are inspired by dreams I have had.
I thought that memories of my dreams no one else was able to see could be shared with others by recording and visualizing them through medium of photography.
It was a suitable medium of expression for me to covey to someone the weird images, beautiful colors and strange events that would not be even imaginable when you are awake.
I hope to keep giving shapes to those beautiful, strange and weird things of the world of my dreams and shapeless things that cannot be seen in the reality.
