Nobuyoshi Araki: Kayuen

Art, Photography

77 years old and claiming to have 'one foot in the grave already', boss photographer Nobuyoshi Araki nonetheless appears to have plenty left to say. In addition to the large-scale 'Tombeau Tokyo' exhibition at Ginza's Nexus Hall and an extensive retrospective at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, this summer sees Araki show off new photos at Aoyama's Rat Hole, where you can admire shots of flowers and dolls arranged and decorated by the snapper himself. The photographs are printed on washi paper, making for a soft touch that differs quite drastically from Araki's signature monochromes.
