Koji Takiguchi, Sou


'Sou is perhaps one of the most concisely direct photo journals concerning family life and death that exists. To lay it bare, Sou begins as Takiguchi's mother-in-law is dying of cancer, and very quickly we are introduced her husband whose health and sanity begins to crumble shortly after her death. We then witness a euphoria of love and romance--resulting in the conception and birth of Takiguchi's son. His beloved cat Ponta dies, followed by a rapid and harrowing decline of his father-in-law's health and subsequent final passing.' (Little Big Man Books)
