Shiritori is a Japanese word game where players challenge each other by saying a word that begins with the final kana of the last word. And much like the game, Shiritori Shashin is an exploration on how to build up a narrative through associat ive storytelling using photographs. The series takes a different turn as each artist answers with a new image that builds up into a new idea. To play shiritori, you only need to use your creativity, the same thing you need to read Shiritori Shashin. There is no right or wrong, and the story only stops when your imagination does!
