77-year-old Renowned Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki presents an extensive solo exhibition PHOTO-CRAZY A / 荒木経惟: 写狂老人A at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery. Incredibly, most works have been created this year (2017) and are accompanied by a rare look into his personal scrapbook work ‘The Greengrocer’ (1964) which he created when he was just 24 years old. Also presenting new and ongoing works, such as ‘遊園の女 Captive Woman In a Pleasure Garden’, to ‘花百景 One Hundred Views of Flowers’. Interestingly, this latest exhibition title is inspired by legendary Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai who in his late 70’s also called himself a “picture-crazy old man”. On view until 3 September, 2017.
