October 21, 2017

“Now aged 77, Tokyo-born-and-based Nobuyoshi Araki is one of the most iconic artists of our time, revered across disciplines from art to fashion and film. A highly prolific photographer and artist—he has published around 500 books—Araki has collaborated with fellow photographers including Nan Goldin and Juergen Teller, as well as pop-celebrities such as Björk and Lady Gaga. “Araki opened up personal, intimate reflections about life, love and photography, against the backdrop of his beloved Tokyo at night, the beauty of Takato Castle’s sakura, and Kyoto’s magnificent temples on a perfect crispy day." —Andrea Cossu
