"Photographs are diary entries… That’s all they can be. Photographs are just documentations of a day’s event. At the same time, they drag the past into the present and also continue into the future. A day’s occurrence evokes both the past and the future. That’s why I want to clearly date my pictures. It’s actually frustrating, that’s why I now photograph the future…"--Araki

The latest in Araki's series of photo-diaries comprised of dated photos - both real and imagined. Here he imagines a flood of his images - 32 per page - spilling into the future all the way until his 100th birthday.
