When people start to know Maiko Jinushi, 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.
