This is a rearranged and edited version of 'Sentimental Journey', Araki's most famous work about his honeymoon, together with 'Winter's Journey', a photographic account of his wife's death and funeral. It represents the final development of genre of personal photography in Japan subsequently called 'I-photography' an allusion to the literary genre the 'I-novel'. The nature of the images follows on from the themes developed in 'Sentimental Journey' and ‘Waga Ai, Yoko’ (1978). Araki saw his wife’s death in terms of a photographic challenge that had to be met. He did it and it cost him some friendships, notably with Shinoyama Kishin with whom he had a very public falling out over the affair. Whether they represent an account of love between man and woman is difficult to judge. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
