Shinya Arimoto “Tibet”
This event has ended.
Shinya Arimoto is known for his street portraiture “Tokyo Circulation”, but his first body of work was actually taken in Tibet over an extended period of time in his 20s. He ventured the Tibetan Culture Area that included parts of China, India and Nepal and took these fresh and vibrant works in monochrome as he shared meals and living space with the people he met in Tibet. To accompany this exhibition, Zen Foto will be publishing a new edition of Arimoto’s first and long out-of-print photobook Portrait of Tibet (published by Visual Arts, 1999) under the title TIBET, which will include a number of previously unpublished works. On April 6, a talk event will be held with Shinya Arimoto and Koichi Ino, the art director of the newly edited photobook. They will show a number of photobooks they have been influenced by and share about their book-making process.
