"Masafumi Sanai is representative of a youthful generation of Japanese photo-diarists. He is a prolific maker of photobooks, of which this is the first and probably most successful. Whereas his female equivalent is probably Hiromix, who shows girls and girl things, Sanai shows boys and boy things, most notably cars. Wakaranai (I Don't Know) could be seen as a loose companion piece to Takashi Homma's Tokyo Suburbia, since it documents the same world of outer-city urban landscapes, portraits of contemporaries, and interiors of vacuous malls and apartments on the fringes of Tokyo, shot in the color snapshot diary-mode made famous by the American, Nan Goldin, who has made an enormous impact on Japanese photography." (Parr & Badger II)
