Fascinating work by Japanese photographer, Orihara, who lived in New York from 1979-1981. During that time she documented the life of Jana, a New York lady with whom she became friends. The photographs of Jana’s everyday life were exhibited in Japan in 1982, and turned into a feature within the Japanese edition of Playboy. The book is notable both for being a woman’s portrait of a woman, and for Orihara’s free discussion in the texts of her perceptions of the differences and similarities between her model and herself.
