Nobuyoshi Araki has achieved world-wide acclaim for his photography, which he began creating in the 1960s. He is known for the great variety of themes and techniques he employs in his work, and for his drive to create, which has resulted in his publishing over 500 photobooks to date—a drive that continues unabated today.
This exhibition catalogue focuses on one theme from his vast oeuvre, his wife Yoko. As Araki himself has said, “It’s thanks to Yoko that I became a photographer.” From their meeting in 1968 until her death in 1990, Yoko was his most important subject.
She has continued to be a major influence on his photography even after her death. In this catalogue, we explore his relationship with the subject he treasured so much and reflect on the “I-Photograph” that is the essence of Araki’s work through his photographs of Yoko and his many works that give a strong sense of her presence. The exhibition title, “Sentimental Journey 1971– 2017–,” refers to Araki Nobuyoshi’s “I-Photographs,” beginning with his self publication of Sentimental Journey as a photobook in 1971, and to his life-long journey as a photographer.
