"To live is to go through a sentimental journey, and to him, to photograph is to go through a sentimental journey." --- Yoko Araki


amanasalto is pleased to present “Sentimental Journey — The Complete Contact Sheets”, a solo exhibition of works by Nobuyoshi Araki at IMA gallery. Araki’s legendary self-published monograph, “Sentimental Journey”, limited to 1000 copies, was released back in 1971 and is now recognized worldwide as an epoch-making masterpiece. 18 contact sheets, i.e. a total of 653 cuts will be presented for the first time. We will also display and sell an archive of Araki’s photography books, including many rare and out-of-print publications.
