More than two years have passed since I first met her. The first movie we saw together was »Harakiri«. A year ago, we were married. I began taking photographs of her the day we met. In her, I saw the woman passing before my eyes—a model, at times the woman I loved, at others the figure of a woman that belonged to me. I feel it is my duty to continue to photograph the woman who holds so many meanings for me. If you consider the taking of photographs to be in a sense a matter of fixing time and space, then this work—the documenting of the life of one human being—is exceptionally thrilling. In facing her, in photographing her, and looking at her in photographs, I also see and discover "myself"
