Nobuyoshi ARAKI "Tokyo Hoshasen" 2010 Photobook SIGNED


Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. “Tokyo Hoshasen" - "Tokyo Radiation, August 6-15, 2010.” Japan: Wides Shuppan, 2010, First Edition, PB, dj, 26 cm x 18 cm, 176 pp, b/w photos.

Collection of photos taken during the 10 days of Araki's radiation treatments for cancer. Sounds morbid, but the hospital photos are actually just a very small part of this book. Though all of the photos may be inspired by Araki's contemplation of mortality, one comes away from the photos amazed at the wide scope of his artistic vision. The sheer variety of the photos - nudes, of course, street scenes around his Shinjuku neighborhood, still life at his home - during what must have been a time-consuming and energy-draining experience is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Condition: Very Good, SIGNED by Araki in silver marker.
