Honestly, I was a little intimidated to talk to him because of his expression.

But I saw it get loosened when I held my camera toward him
and the way he talks turned out to be really gentle.

Appearance can be somewhat interesting in that way.
We sometimes think that tells everything about something or someone.

But actually it is just the last piece of something that is made with a lot of pieces.

Once we look into it, we find there are a lot of things we can not see from outside.

I think that is what interacting means.

鋭い目つきと表情から受ける、いわゆる強面という印象。

彼の周りを追いかけレンズを向けると少しその表情は和らぐ。
そして言葉を交わした際に、紡ぎ出された言葉達は驚く程穏やかで。

外観というのは不思議な物で、
時折、それが全ての様な気がしてしまう。

でもそれはあくまで何かを形作る上での一番 端っこの要素。

その内側に踏み込んで見ると、あらゆる中身が飛び出してくる。

それが交流という動詞の本質。
