“Mémoires” is the title of a visual labor of memory that the Japanese and Graz-based photo­grapher Seiichi Furuya, has been carrying out since the late 1980s. In numerous exhibitions and artist’s books Furuya combines portraits of his deceased wife with pictures from their travels together and places of residence. The pictures from East Berlin, where Furuya lived from 1985 to 1987, are an exceptional document, featuring a vivid interplay between the private and public, between personal vision and documentary detachment.
