Seiichi FurayaSeiichi Furuya : First Trip to Bologna 1978 / Last Trip to Venice 1985


In 1973, Seiichi Furuya left Japan for Europe on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Once in Austria, he first settled in Vienna before moving to Graz where he met Christine Gössler in 1978. He soon began to photograph her, both in the privacy of their home in Graz and on trips abroad – to Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy…and Japan, their furthest destination.

After the birth of their son in 1981, Christine immersed herself in the world of theatre. As she devoted herself to her acting classes, she began to show signs of schizophrenia. She committed suicide in East Berlin in 1985.

Since Christine’s death, Furuya has continued to revisit her archive. This work presents a selection of photographs from the couple’s last trip, before Christine committed suicide.
