Nobuyoshi ARAKI "Shikijyokyo" 2001 Photobook Ltd Ed 1000


Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. “Shikijyo kyo.” Japan: Taka Ishii Gallery, 2001, First Edition, PB, no dj as issued, 21 cm x 17 cm, 40 pp, 39 b/w photos (painted in color by Araki). Limited to 1000 copies.

Maybe Araki's first publication of painted b/w prints - a technique that has obsessed him this last decade - he has remarked that it makes him feel like he is "artistically molesting" his subjects. Generally alternating nudes and scenery-scapes, you will recognize some of Araki's iconic images underneath the paint.

Condition: Good.
