Path in Between
The book is the visual record of the author’s process of recovering memories with clues found on paths his father used to take and places his family used to visitWhen he attempted to trace memories of his late father, Hajime Kimura realized that most of them were missing. Because of this, his photos were shot with a half-framed camera. Each image consists of two shots divided by a thick black border. The continuous sequence of the images seems to repeatedly suggest the photographer’s impossible attempt at recovering a lost past. One can come close to faded memories, but cannot reconstruct them perfectly.
