Ex Post Facto.
One Picture Book #55.
Photographs by Mayumi Lake.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2009. 16 pp., 6 four-color illustrations, one original print, 5½x7¼".
In this calm yet emotionally charged photographic narrative, Japanese artist Mayumi Lake traces her family history back some 60 years and revisits her childhood fantasy of bring back her grandfathers, both of whom were killed in combat during World War Two. Rural landscapes evoke memories of battlefields, and female portraits pay tribute to those who suffered the loss of their loved ones.
