The year 1990 marks a great loss in the life of the famous Japanese photographer: the death of his wife with whom he had shared every project for twenty years. This volume affectionately and dramatically documents the sad course of the disease until her passing. Certainly a less usual aspect in the vast production of Araki, who reached great fame in 1971 with a volume entitled “Sentimental Journey”, dedicated to his honeymoon with his wife and companion. One of the books that the author himself counts among his most important out of more than 500 published since the beginning of his career

A memorial volume to Yoko, it opens with some photos from the first Sentimental Journey, and includes photos of Yoko in the hospital and of her funeral. Wistful commentary by Araki. It closes joyously with a photo of Chiro [their cat] walking briskly in the snow
