Over the pages of the photography spreads, it almost seems like a solitary butterfly was fluttering and flitting, traversing, and crossing the sea in flight to Miyakojima. Turning the pages, one senses that Fujiwara’s eye and the eye of the night butterfly, are beginning to combine with her late father’ gaze. One realizes that here in Miyakojima, this is a sacred sphere. For the butterfly flitting back and forth, between earthly life and the other side, this world and eternity, it is a place to its liking.
Sokyu-sha is one of the many galleries in Shinjuku Gyoen. As well as being a gallery space, it is also one of the most interesting photography bookstores in Tokyo.
