Lieko Shiga: Blind Date (Signed)
It was the summer of 2009 in Bangkok, Thailand, that Shiga photographed couples on motorbikes.
In this city Shiga exchanged glances with hundreds and thousands of people on the back seat of motorbikes. The camera seemed to be the ideal tool for getting closer to that strange feeling of receiving glances without physically connecting with them.
She continued for a week and managed to photograph around 100 couples.
Continuing to exchange glances with unknown strangers had an effect on her and she felt as though she was rediscovering the sense of wildness that resided in the depths of her heart. It was a rich experience, as if she was touching something very sensual.
