Each image in this series is based on a certain quote I chose deliberately, taken from Haruki Murakami’s fiction called ‘Sputnik Sweetheart’.

Reading Murakami’s writing is like reading a poem. Each word chosen and each sentence strung are so finely and beautifully composed, yet at the same time give such uncanny and surreal feeling that leads me to these boundless imaginations I could ever relate to. His words are simple, mundane and honest that it is almost too painful to read, let alone digest. Every time I read his writings, I feel as if Murakami himself is putting a mirror in front of my face. It’s embarrassing and comforting at the same time.

While working on this project, I often get carried away and treating it as my own little memoir; I don’t know where is this going to end and I don’t want to know when.
