Nobuyoshi Araki "Polart"
This event has ended.

From 2009-07-17 To 2009-08-20
強烈。/ An intense stimulation.
As the title suggests this is a exhibition of Araki's Polaroid photography. Those familiar with his photobooks will recognize his style as well as many of the models, props and of course his cat.
Although the majority of the 5000 photographs are arranged together like tiles along the large gallery walls, some of the photographs are grouped separately according to a particular theme - food, Polaroid manipulation, a particular model or photo shoot etc.
I recommend this exhibition to those with little or no previous exposure to Araki. Those that are familiar with his work might leave thinking only..."wow, he really did take a lot of them...."
The volume of photographs on display
Easy gallery to find
The photo book associated with the exhibit might be a bit too expensive for some, 13,000 yen.
