For Jacques Henri Lartigue, what started out as a casual hobby soon turned into a passion and thereby shaped up his career. He just wanted to capture the essence of his family’s daily life. Lartigue’s albums were a major force behind the new concept in photography known as diarism. This new genre had become even more widespread in the 1980’s. This program examines photos by Antoine d’Agata, Nan Golden, Nobuyoshi Araki and other acclaimed artists as it evaluates how these artists dabbled in different concepts of privacy and performance, display and secretion.
The video emphasizes “Sentimental Journey” and “Winter Journey,” which documents the life span and eradication of Araki’s wife. “The Ballad of Sexual Dependency,” in which Golden obscures the boundary between real affinities and posed. The video also focuses on the leading-edge photo fresco of “utmost experience’’ popular as “Personal Diary of the 21st Century”.
