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

  1. Museum collections online and the Life Archives…I could seriously spend my whole day gazing at them!

  3. 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 :)
