Nobuyoshi Araki Araki Amore

18th november 2016 - 26th march 2017

With the emblematic title of “Araki Amore” the Galleria Carla Sozzani presents an exhibition of Nobuyoshi Araki one of the most renowned and perhaps controversial Japanese photographers. A selection of works curated by Filippo Maggia,
mostly unpublished and produced in the last two years.

Nobuyoshi Araki is a generous artist, a tireless explorer of human passions and a fine portrait maker. He is always able to deeply relate with his subjects. In this exhibition the 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.

The female figure appears here to be as a less visible, almost evoked: in the dancing figures of the Kaori dancers and in the use of dolls and other puppets that have always populated the dreams of the Tokyo photographer, as if they were souvenirs or memories, simple notes left on the sentimental diary of a life that has been spent to celebrate the beauty and the time transience of things that are destined to fade.
