Ellen Takata’s article, "Between Gardens: Criticality and Consolation in a Contact Sheet by Furuya Seiichi,” has been accepted for publication in the forthcoming issue of Innovative Research in Japanese Studies (Summer 2018), the journal of the Israeli Association for Japanese Studies. The article develops research that Ellen presented at the invitation of Dr. Ayelet Zohar at the Association’s Third Biennial Conference last year. Specifically, Ellen brings a focus on elements of nature while analyzing multiple visual narratives in the work of photographer Furuya Seiichi (b. 1950, Japan, living in Central Europe since 1973) in order to consider a variety of interactions of history and personal life.
