Remarques & avis / ReviewWaga Ai, Yoko is the great sequel, published in Asahi's prestigious collection "Sonorama Shashin", of Nobuyoshi ARAKI's real debut Sentimental Journey (1971 ; PARR BADGER I, 295) that initiated in Japan the subjective genre of "I-Photography" (Shi-Shashin) for which Araki is best known, which considerably blurs the boundary between public and private life, in his case often intertwined with his sexual life. Yoko My Love features a large number of quite raw b&w pictures of Araki's wife Yoko, from 1968 to 1977, including some from the said 1971 opus, that represent and sum up the casual intimacy of her life. A beautiful testimony and photobook to which echoes Sentimental na Tabi: Fuyu no Tabi (1991) at Yoko's death.

Waga Ai, Yoko est la superbe suite, publiée dans la prestigieuse collection "Sonorama Shashin" d'Asahi, du véritable début d'ARAKI Nobuyoshi, Sentimental Journey (1971 ; PARR BADGER I, 295) qui lanca au Japon le genre sujbectif de la "Photographie-Je" (Shi-Shashin) pour lequel Araki est le mieux connu, qui brouille considérablement la frontière entre entre vie publique et vie privée, pour lui souvent associée au sexe. Yoko Mon Amour contient une foison de photographies en noir, plutôt brutes, de Yoko, l'épouse d'Araki, de 1968 à 1977, y compris certaines du sus-dit opus de 1971, qui représentent et somment l'intimité quotidienne de sa vie, du fond du futon, des toilettes, au train, voyage et repas. Un très beau témoignage et livre-photo, auquel fait écho Sentimental na Tabi : Fuyu no Tabi (1991) à la mort de Yoko.
