Hello everybody -
I'd like to let you know that my second photo book titled,
"Memoraphilia" came out here in Japan.
The title "Memoraphilia" is a neologism, meaning "A love of memory
and things memorable. A disposition toward remembrance."
My second solo exhibition of the same title is going to be held at
Zeit-Foto Salon in Tokyo from 17 February to 12 March, 2005.
I hope you get a chance to see this little book and the exhibition.
Hope you're well!
That perfume of remembrance, the whiff of old dust, stillness.
How can others' recollections call up such feelings of nostalgia?
