ARAKI AMORE EXHIBITION
ARAKI AMORE OPENING
With the emblematic title of “Araki Amore” it opened last night at Galleria Carla Sozzani
the exhibition of the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki with a selection of works
mostly unpublished and produced in the last two years curated by Filippo Maggia.
Classic themes of his photographic research:
nudes, portraits, floral arrangements, the orderly yet chaotic metropolitan city,
are all read today and processed with the recovery of negatives from the past decades.
There are also on show three new compositions of more than 100 polaroid
that have been put together by Araki as unique works,
and a video documentary taken last year in July in Tokyo that presents for the first time in Italy,
Araki working with the dancer Kaori in a naked portrait session.
“After reincarnation in my new life, photography will still be the first word that I utter.
It’s been a 60-year contract, near enough. – Photography is love and death – that’ll be my epitaph”.
Galleria Carla Sozzani presents an exhibition of Nobuyoshi Araki
