Japanese Love Story

as many of you know i love browsing through the life image archives. usually i have no real goal – just sniffing around, digging until i find something great to share with you. since it’s Valentine’s Day i thought this collection of photographs called Japanese¬†Love Story by John Dominis was fitting. i don’t know what the photographs were taken for or if there is an actual love story behind any of them… perhaps just let your imagination fill in the blanks.

I sit at home
In our room
By our bed
Gazing at your pillow.

Kakinomoto no Hitomaro

    So beautiful! I love not knowing what this story was about. It’s magical this way. We can create our own story.

    I don’t why but I love the last image, she’s smiling but you can’t really see his face. Thanks for sharing this :)
