director: Yu Yamanaka


Dad wasn’t exactly stylish, and neither were the photographs he took—at least on the surface. But what truth did they conceal?
SIGMA’s first short film,“blur” brings to the screen messages that SIGMA has held as important since the company’s foundation: when people are moved, people are inspired to take photographs. And every photograph, just like every life, is amazing.
