Last Trip to Venice

Text: Seiichi Furuya

After Christine was released from hospital at the end of February 1985, she and FURUYA jumped on a night express to Venice. They stayed for three days, wandering aimlessly around the island. FURUYA shot two rolls of transparencies while they were there, but he accidentally used one of them again, resulting in it having images of East Berlin superimposed upon it. In 2000, he self-published 529 copies of these pictures in book form in tribute to Christine on her birthday. In 2002 he held an exhibition of this work under the same title (Shinjuku Nikon Salon, Tokyo), for which he received the 27th Ina Nobuo Award.
