  Portrait

Text: Monika Faber


"As Alfred Stieglitz portrayed his life partner, Georgia O'Keeffe, in endless photographic images, so did Seiichi Furuya with his wife Christine. The only difference lies within the fact that their deep relationship spanned only seven years before her untimely death. In these desperately intimate portraits, the viewer follows Furuya's growing understanding of the many sides of his deceased wife but also opens a window into understanding himself. As stated by the artist, 'As I see her, take photographs of her, look at her in the pictures, I find myself." An amazing example of the camera's ability to portray the soul of both it's subject and the photographer."
