This event has ended.
Nobuyoshi Araki has been at the forefront of photography since the 1960s, and his worldwide reputation as one of Japan’s top photographers remains strong today. Now in his seventies, Araki seems to be more active than ever, this exhibition presenting some of his most recent work, including brand new works on a gigantic scale. The artist is well known for the variety of his subjects and techniques, and his ceaseless exploration of the potential of photography still shows no sign of abating, despite having continued for over fifty years. For Araki, photography represents a record of his life, and a close personal encounter with death has recently brought further clarity to the portrayal of life and death that has long been a significant theme in his work. Consequently, while vividly communicating the Araki of today, the exhibition can also be seen as approaching the core of his massive and varied body of work.
