Nobuyoshi Araki, Sentimental Journey, 1971

These are pictures that I had never seen before because they’re not printed in the new version that compiles Sentimental Journey and Winter Journey, which shows Araki’s honeymoon with his wife Yoko and the final months before her passing in 1990.

In the preface, Araki wrote:
"These are totally different from the fake photographs you find all over the place. Sentimental Journey is my love and a photographer’s solution. But I’m not saying that these photos are real just because I took them on my honeymoon. I made love my point of departure as a photographer, and it just happened that it all started from a story told in the first person singular. (I-novel)”
