Letzte Reise nach Berlin-Ost/Last Trip to East Berlin, 1985 (2020)

Photos taken with a pocket camera in 1985, mainly by Christine Furuya.

In September 1978, Seiichi F. received a pocket camera as a giveaway from KODAK at the Photokina fair in Cologne. At that time, Christine F. worked as a waitress in the restaurant "Wienerwald" in Böblingen near Stuttgart for a summer job. After his work with the Photokina he visited her in Böblingen and returned together with the train to Graz. The first picture with this pocket-camera was made by Christine in the train at the station Stuttgart. Seiichi gave her this camera. At the beginning of 2018, Seiichi, for the first time, sorted out and arranged films stored in a cardboard box containing other things in the attic room. He then scanned all the shots without exception and made the pictures visible. There was a total of 27 films. 4 from 1978, 1 from 81, 9 from 82 and 13 films from 1985. It can be assumed that some films have been lost. From June 1982 to May 1984, while family lived in Vienna, she did not take a single photo. She was very busy with her acting studies. In February 1985, right after her discharge from the hospital in Graz, Christine and Seiichi traveled to Venice. In 2002, over this three-day journey, Seiichi himself published the book "Last Trip to Venice". The first pocket-camera shot in 1985 was made in Venice and continued almost continuously until mid-July until she had to start treatment again at the Charité in Berlin-Ost. Incredible but true, Christine has recorded a sequel to "Last Trip to Venice" with this pocket-camera and after 33 years this sleeping past "Last Journey to Berlin-East, 1985" was awakened by Seiichi.
