RHYLLI OGIURA.. THIS WOMAN BEHOLDS DEEP KNOWLEDGE 

AND HER HAIR IS PURE WISDOM. 

I HAVE BEEN INTERACTING AND CONDUCTING

THIS BEAUTIFUL HEAD OF FIBERS FOR CLOSE TO A DECADE. 

THEY ARE STRONG, VIBRANT AND CONFIDENT

JUST LIKE RHYLLI.

WE SET OUT TO MCGOLRICK PARK, NEAR MY HOUSE IN GREENPOINT

I WANTED TO CUT RHYLLI'S HAIR IN NATURE

AND PHOTOGRAPH THE PROCESS

I WANTED HER TO FEEL THE BREEZE ON HER FACE 

AND LET ALL DISTRACTIONS MELT AWAY.

WE FOUND A BEAUTIFUL SPOT TO LAND

I HAD RHYLLI CLOSE HER EYES 

AND TO DREAM UP WHAT THIS MOMENT COULD BRING TO HER

SHE FOUND HERSELF IN KYOTO

SHE WAS HOME
