"Fireflies disappear from view, and I realized also how the unfathomable presence we call women also run and leap in droves. When the sweet nectar of my youth was gone, I took a camera as my new firefly broom, and decided I would capture new fireflies. It is 35 years now since I began shooting fireflies. I hoped to convey that passion and subtle sensuality women possess."--Mizoguchi
