They are Japanese Butoh dancers.
They paint their own body and dance fiercely with passion.

The world beyond the gate seen by Dante, the author of "La Divina Commedia", is such a sight.
There were people who were suffering in the darkness and seeking salvation from God.

As I imagined, I took a picture.

I was born in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, and currently work in advertising and book design in Tokyo. Photography is not my main job, but I have worked in a photography studio and have been working freelance until today. I am good at taking pictures of people who move in any places such as performing arts and dancing.
