    I looked at this when it was first posted and revisited it tonight. It is interesting that a culture that has been so traditionally non-linear is represented in such a linear photo essay. The images tell a story that many young men can tell-how they left to seek their fortunes at the expense of their families. This is the documentation of what the prodigal son was witness to when he returned not to a feast but a funeral–and provides insight into Ito’s “eye” (not primarily photographic but maybe subconscious)in relation to not only the death of his father but the life that remains that he not only is a part of, but also holds a responsibility to.
