Hanako is a touching story of a handicapped girl and her family, which was also made into a film. The juxtaposition of portraits of the girl and her father with objects of everyday life is extremely successful: Rather than focussing on the suffering, this book shows the positive side of her life, and the beautiful value of her existence. (Titus Boeder, 4/07) Singed by the artist at the British Museum on 5 October 2010.
