Nobuyoshi Araki’s early works collected on 510 pages.
The massive volume “Gekko Shashin” collects 26 series by Japanese photography master Nobuyoshi Araki. Taken between 1964 and 1971, during the early years of Araki’s career, they form the missing link between his 1964 photobook “Sachin” (which earned him the Taiyo Award) and his 1972 masterpiece “Sentimental Journey”. Featuring portraits, street photographs, studio shots and playful experiments, “Gekko Shashin” is an indispensable volume for any fan of Araki’s work and anyone interested in Japanese photography’s modern roots.
The book includes a booklet with an interview with Nobuyoshi Araki (in Japanese language only).
