Whist on honeymoon with his wife and favourite muse in 1971 Araki bought a camera to photograph the trip. In this image, taken on the Yanagawa River, Yoko is sleeping on a rowboat. Along with the other photographs he took on the trip it became a series entitled £Sentimental Journey,” one of Araki’s best-known and most acclaimed works.
