The images that make up the Yajima albums were nearly all taken outside the home, on its threshold or at a distance. The map below shows the geographic spread of Isao's movement across Album 2. It is included here to emphasise the huge debt of bodily movement which underpins the static materiality of the finished albums. The movement within Album 2 is characterised by the absence of Isao and Eiko's two older children (Haruki and Satuski) and the inclusion of the car in a large number of images.
Clicking on each map pin will show a photo twinned with each place. This might be the only photo taken there such as the newlywed portrait that begins this module, or part of a series such as the day Isao and Haruki went to Meiji Gaien.
