Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. “Araki in Wien" - "Araki in Vienna.” Kyoto: Korinsha Shuppan, 1998, First Edition, 2 PBs, clear acetate slipcase, 21 x 15 cm, ca. 400 total pages, color & b/w photos.

"A collection combining Komodon Goes to Vienna, which was photographed backstage at the solo exhibition Tokyo Comedy held the previous year at the Wiener Secession, and Tokyo Paradise, which includes new images of Tokyo supplementing the photographs used at the time in Arakinema. Conveys the enthusiastic welcome accorded to Araki in Europe after an absence of sixteen years."--Kotaro Iizawa, Araki: Self, Life, Death

"Two books in a riveted acetate slipcase, Araki in Wien simultaneously chronicles the photographer's Vienna exhibition and his exploits in that city during the show's opening. The distinctions between Araki's projects are always subtle, here there is a greater attention to violence - Hollywood-style staged violence - and an ironic Tokyo-like romp through one of the West's most illustrious cultural centers."--Photo-eye

Two separate books housed in clear acetate. The maroon cover book, printed in the vertical format, is almost all b/w images from Vienna. The gray cover book, printed in horizontal format, is all color images, mostly nudes.

Condition: Excellent.
