Nobuyoshi Araki - Sentimental Journey 1971 - 2017

Nobuyoshi Araki - Sentimental Journey 1971 - 2017

Published with an exhibition at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, this profoundly poignant collection of photographs by Nobuyoshi Araki focuses on a single theme from his vast oeuvre: his wife Yoko. As Araki himself has said, “It’s thanks to Yoko that I became a photographer”. From their first encounter in 1968 until her premature death from ovarian cancer in 1990, Yoko was his most important subject and muse. The book explores Araki’s relationship with the woman he most treasured, beginning with his record of their honeymoon, and continuing with numerous photos in which she is the subject, as well as many others from after her passing that give a strong sense of her presence.
Texts by Gozo Yoshimusa, Juergen Teller, Seiichi Furuya, Miyako Ishiuchi, Daido Moriyama, Toshiharu Ito, Filippo Maggia, Michiko Kasahara and Hiromi Kitazwaw.
