9/16: 西門町

9/16: 西門町

Corpses piled on bridges, corpses blocking off a whole street at the intersection, corpses displaying every manner of death possible to human beings. When I involuntarily looked away, my brother scolded me, ‘Akira, look carefully now.’ When that night I asked my brother why he made me look at those terrible sights, he replied: ‘If you shut your eyes to a frightening sight, you end up being frightened. If you look at everything straight on, there is nothing to be afraid of.’ With my camera, like Dostoyevsky with his prose, I have tried to force the audience — which is often unwilling — to look carefully now.

― Akira Kurosawa (via foucaultscat)
