* Nobuyoshi ARAKI "Shakyo rojin nikki uso" 2015 Photobook SIGNED


Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. "Shakyo rojin nikki uso” - “Old Lying Photo-Maniac’s Diary." Japan: Wides Shuppan, 2015, First Edition, PB, dj, 19 cm x 26 cm, 278 pp, b/w photos.

Through the years Araki has called himself “Shakyojin” - “Photo-maniac” and published a series of photo diaries with the term in the title. In his latest visitation to this theme he has inserted the words “rojin” and “uso” - “old man” and “liar.” Of course, with Araki’s practice of date manipulation on his past dairy images, some lying has always been part of the art. Though all of Araki’s favorite subjects are in evidence - nudes, skyscapes, flowers, street scenes, vulgar and mischievously arrange toys - Araki’s recent health issues hover over many of the images. Indeed some of the most poignant images are the simple ones taken out the window of the unsuspecting people in the street below while the lonely and ill voyeur is confined to his bed.

Condition: Excellent, SIGNED by Araki in silver marker on the front endpaper.
