Like Planets consists of 5 chapters. The book documents a seemingly quiet, intimate, existence in the company of her then partner, the artist, David Sylvian. Far from the world of popular music, the book reads like a visual poem of the time shared together. Sylvian is depicted in hotel rooms, small villages, graveyards, landscapes rural, exotic, and forbidding, before finally reaching a point of change, of grace, in the darkened rooms of Konya and Istanbul. Interspersed with poems and quotations, this is a tantalising and evocative glimpse of an intensely private life at a pivotal point in its evolution.

‘David and I were frequently like planets revolving around one another and, in some sense, this gravitational pull continues to this day.’ – YUKA FUJII

‘It’s hard to match the beauty of David Sylvian’s songs and sound in a visual context … but, judging by this beautifully shot and presented book … Yuka Fujii’s images come very close.’ – ANTON CORBIJN
