From the series,
funiculi funicula

Asako Narahashiiborn in Tokyo in 1959jis a Tokyo-based, internationally active photographer.
Her work series, gFUNICULI FUNICULAh is published as a photograph collection from Sokyusha in 2003. In 2004, Next year, this collection was awarded will get the prize of the Society of Photography in its 16th year.
g I did not have a particular vision of the photographs that I would take. I just loaded the film, and decided simply to start walking outwardly. Trying as much as possible, to capture scenes I had never captured before, extending out, raising my eyes upwards somewhat.h (A postscript from gFUNICULI FUNICULAh)
Take the camera, get out of the house, and take a step out of a familiar town. As Narahasi says, Photography is traces of simple and physical action. However, itfs transformed and reappears with richness and dignity; also it has broadened views and a peculiar sense of distance.
Although photography is a media tool to capture single moments, it catches our sight repeatedly and comes back to us again and again. This amusement comes from gFUNICULI FUNICULA.h As she developed her own way of snapping photos, this is a cornerstone of her series.
