F.A.Q.

When did you start photographing?
- December 2006. But I started taking "serious" photos late 2007.

Are you a professional model?
- No.

What does your username mean?
- オモイデ (omoide) is Japanese and means memory, so basically it's "bye bye memory".

Why do you call yourself bye bye オモイデ?
- Long story short; I fell in love with a Japanese song where the lyrics said bye bye オモイデ, and then I felt like using it as a username. Also, I think bye bye オモイデ describes how life is, especially photography. We say bye to memories and capture them in a photo.

What inspires you?
- Everything.

Who are your favorite artists?
- Tim Walker, Kuang Hong, David LaChapelle, Zhang Jingna, Sølve Sundsbø, Annie Leibovitz, Patrick Demarchelier, James Hawkins...just to name a few. ;)

Why do you take so many self portraits?
- For various reasons. Reason number one is it's fun. But honestly, why I do doesn't matter.

May I blog your photos?
- Of course, as long as they link back to my photostream, or you credit me somehow. :)

Can we be friends on Skype/Facebook/whatever?
- I only add friends...

    "The muse I have not yet met.

    Each time I view her and her work, a flurry of activity kick starts somewhere inside me - I can't quite figure out where it is, but it is the feeling of being encapsulated by creativity and depth of spirit.

    And her talent continues to grow exponentially."

    "Bye Bye is a young deep artist fell in love of many kind of sperimental visions about human person. Her self portraits are one of the best part of her work, so original and good conceived..but more of this she can go with the camera in another world and come back at home, with the precious sensitivity of a real artist!
    Hope the best for U wonderful girl! jeffelix69/Gio"

    "By turns moody, hot-blooded, innocent and bleak-humoured, bye bye ????'s photos are often stunning and always dramatic. She knows how to fill the camera frame and her photos don't waste our time. In fact she gives us photos which are worthwhile ways of filling our time.

    I suspect that bye bye ???? is a little bit like her photos - a little bit moody, a little bit hot-blooded, and a little bit innocent, but it's her sense of humour which, when combined with those photos, makes me recommend that someday she pursue a career in photography."
