"Everyone we see is living "on the way" that we don't understand the meaning of." A collection of works woven around the theme of "unknowability" of life, death, existence, and mind, using bridges, birds, dogs, grass, iron poles, morning sunsets, and loved ones as motifs. Considering what can only be conveyed through photographs/what cannot be conveyed through photographs alone, the composition of the book is an interplay of photographs and text. The title was chosen because it has two seemingly contradictory meanings: "the end here" and "going beyond to the other side”.
