In October we are looking at Nobuyoshi Araki's 'A Sentimental Journey, Winter Journey' on the Photo Book Club photobookclub.org .
A relatively unknown photographer in the late 1960s, Nobuyoshi Araki began documenting his young wife through an intimate series titled My Wife Yoko (1967-1976), a body of work now considered one of the Japanese photographers most important.
From their honeymoon to their home life and vacations, we begin to understand the relationship between the young couple, a relationship that Araki continues to explore through his later series Winter Journey (1989/90), a period that that marks the final chapter in their lives together, as Yoko battles with terminal illness and they say their final goodbyes.
In ‘Sentimental Journey, Winter Journey’, both these series are combined in a hardcover book in slipcase.
Leave your thoughts on the book in the comments section here if you fancy getting involved.
