バチが当たった。/ I am punished by heaven. (2014)

 

大切な恋人がいるにもかかわらず、わたしは浮気をしてしまった。そしたら散々な目にあって、散々な目になった。

とりあえず、写真を撮って残しておこうと、毎日1枚ずつ自分の顔の写真を撮った。

ひとまずフィルム2本分を撮り終え、現像にだしてみると、カメラが壊れていて何も写っていなかった。

可哀想で可哀想で堪らない私の写真は、たまたま違うカメラで撮っていた

この2枚だけしか残っていなかった。もう、全部バチが当たったのだと思った。

 Although I had a boyfriend at the time who I cherished, I cheated on him. The person I cheated with and I dated for quite a while. One day, he beat me when we had an argument. My face was cut until it bled hard. It swelled and I was bruised all over my face. I couldn't even go to work.

 However, I though it could be a chance to produce my new art works. I began to take pictures of those scars everyday. I spent 2 rolls of film and had them developed. Without knowing why, the camera had broken and pictures I took were fully exposed. It was all black and nothing came out. These are the only 2 pictures I have because I used a different camera. ​

 I think I was punished by heaven.
