The title 'shusengo' is an evocative commonly used phrase in Japan, indicating the present post-war era. Used by Araki it is turned into the opposite: All of the pictures were taken in August and September 1973: They are printed in various sizes from contact sheets that themselves show a certain amount of wear and tear and evoke an era that is essentially gone. High contrast street scenes, clips of the TV, middle-aged ladies sleeping on the train, parks, crowds, shadows, this work is hovering on the brink of documentary photography in the sense of unintentionally documenting something. It was published on the 16th August, one day after War Memorial Day. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
