About Maiko Jinushi
When people start to know Maiko, they find her comfortable. And at the same time, they also feel struck by her keenness she is trying to shoot through. I feel taut when noticing the uncertainties of her quality in which she adapted to grow with the sensitivity she has towards the world.
I also am a person that gets such impressions from her, that’s why I cherish her friendship.
The characters that appear in her video work, they hesitate or lose their words but try to lead an answer to her questions with their dialogue.
I hurt too, through feeling for them as they catch the tension, try to believe her, and try to read her words.
But in fact you only have a critical sensation if you want to love someone. Maiko tells this through her shooting.
And the most important thing I need to tell you. She tries to scoop up the potential to want to be involved, to fathom out, which is their strength.
