Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. "Film Nostalgia." Tokyo: Taka Ishii Gallery, 2011, First Edition, PB, dj, 26 cm x 26 cm, 96 pp, 408 color & b/w photos, Edition limited to 500 copies.

“Having survived prostate cancer, Araki contemplated his own death and conflicts in his work “2THESKY, my Ender”; soon thereafter, on 2 March 2010, Araki faced the death of his beloved cat “Chiro” – whom he had lived together with since his wife Yoko’s death. Happy times passed through into the past, leaving Araki to live in the past. As he watched children play innocently in a city park, Araki determined that the thoughts that conjure memories of happiness – nostalgia – is indeed life itself.”--Taka Ishii Gallery

“I am not embarrassed to title my show ‘Nostalgia,’ as I might have been in the past. Though it can come off as very cliched. But I am now officially calling myself ‘The old man, a photo maniac,’ just like Hokusai (the ukiyo-e artist who called himself “The old man, a painting maniac”) did when he was about 75 years old. Photography, in a way, is a modern ukiyo-e.”--Araki
