This chapter contains portraits of the young Seki Hajime that are inserted in narrated time, which offers a window on his youth. The author integrated photographic records to follow the course of Seki Hajime's journey from childhood to adulthood. The photographs are placed in a chronological order to serve as signposts and to trace Seki's youth. They photographs not only serve as a record on the biological transformation of Seki into a man, but also as a record of his youthful socialization, and his personal and professional successes. The photographs furthermore reveal Seki to be a young boy who was nurtured with care by a loving father, an adolescent who learned discipline and perseverance from his mother, a teenager who was abruptly thrust into manhood, a gifted student who later distinguished himself as a respected teacher, and how he took to the road toward being a respected economist.
