About Une Double Absence
So, Une Double Absence tells the story of a young man, Daiki. Whose life was entirely dedicated to his grandmother, Yukimi. Fascinated and touched by this unique relationship, photographer Akihito Yoshida (Daiki’s cousin and grandson also of Yukimi) decides to document this story.
Yoshida photographs everyday life. We see over the years, a rare relationship between the grandmother and her grandson: attention, kindness, trust and also attachment. They draw a bond of extraordinary strength. But one day, Daiki disappears, without a word. Yukimi collapses, Daiki’s presence fades. So, what remains of this story, of their relationship, of their affection? Here, Yoshida shows the impermanence of the beings. The fragility of the links. As well as, the appearances which deceive.
