As suggested at the start, Seiichi Furuya belongs to a generation of photographers allied to an existentialist dialectic: on the one hand, the continual, almost obsessive recording of what life is made up of, right through to the catastrophe which photography is unable to avert but can only register. On the other hand, the retelling of this story in the subjunctive: If when why.
