In 1994 Goldin and Araki decided to collaborate on a project about adolescents in Tokyo. They set out to capture the joys, thrills, and anxieties of youth.
“I came back to Tokyo in the spring of 1994 to photograph the new Japanese youth and managed to track down my own tribe. I found a household of kids who are living by the same beliefs that I did as a teenager, and who transcended any definition of hetero or homosexual”. Nan Goldin
“Nan has lost so many of her best friends to AIDS. I wanted her to forget these experiences along with the other sorrows of life and to take pictures in Tokyo”. Nobuyoshi Araki
