A true photographic narrative, this book tells the story of a young man, Daiki, whose life was entirely dedicated to his grandmother, Yukimi. Fascinated and moved by this unique relationship, photographer Akihito Yoshida, Daiki's cousin and also Yukimi's grandson, decided to document this story. He photographs the daily life and over the years, we see a rare relationship created between the grandmother and her grandson: attention, kindness, trust and attachment form a bond of extraordinary strength. But one day, Daiki disappears, without a word. Yukimi collapsed, Daiki's presence faded. What is left of this story, of their relationship, of their affection? Akihito Yoshida shows the impermanence of beings, the fragility of bonds, the appearances that deceive, the haunting absence of our loved ones.

 

This work has been presented at the Kyotographie International Photography Festival, the Lianzhou Foto Festival, both in 2017, and the Singapore International Photography Festival in 2018.
