Tokyo: Switch Publishing, 2020.
Over 500 pages made up of reproductions of Araki’s 26 scrapbooks made between 1964 and 1971. An important book in understanding the artist, the scrapbooks provide a link between his 1964 book “Sacchin” for which he won the Taiyo prize and enabled him to leave the advertising agency he was working for to pursue photography full time and his masterpiece “Sentimental Journey” published in 1971. Within these pages we can see many of the important motifs he later developed. 510 pages, 21×29.7 cm. Item #15338
