Bodies and Structures 2.0: Deep-Mapping Modern East Asian History

Mapping Album 3

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 3. It is included here to emphasise the huge debt of bodily movement which underpins the static materiality of the final album. The most significant movement which occurred and is archived by Album 3 is the family's move to a new home. The pins in this map are noticeably fewer than Album 1 or 2 for two reasons:

  1. there are a large number of photographs which document posing at home alongside the cars;
  2. the album is only partly completed.

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.
