荒木経惟,〈センチメンタルな旅〉 1971年,東京都寫真美術館藏 | 東京都寫真美術館提供


 

荒木経惟,​這位自1960年代開始生產影像的日本攝影家,至今出版了逾五百本攝影書,以持續旺盛的創作慾、獨樹一格的風格視野與豐富多樣的表現力,受到世界的注目。​

本展聚焦於荒木畢生投入的創作主題——他的妻子,陽子。正如荒木自己所說的,「因為陽子,我成為了一個攝影師。」從兩人在60年代相識相戀,到陽子在1990年因病逝世,陽子一直是荒木最重要的拍攝對象。即使後來陽子遠行,對荒木而言,陽子對他的攝影仍舊有著重要的影響。此次展出,東京都寫真美術館呈現了荒木與他最珍視的拍攝對象的關係所映射而成的「私寫真」,這是荒木作品中最重要的部份。展覽名稱「感傷之旅 1971-2017-」源自於荒木経惟在1971年發表他與陽子新婚旅行時所拍攝的一本攝影書,現已成為「私寫真」的代表之作,同時也是荒木攝影家生涯的最初起點。

ARAKI Nobuyoshi has achieved world-wide acclaim for his photography, which he began creating in the 1960s. He is known for the great variety of themes and techniques he employs in his work and for his drive to create, a drive that continues unabated today. This exhibition focuses on one theme from his vast oeuvre, his wife Yoko. As Araki himself has said, “It’s thanks to Yoko that I became a photographer.” From their meeting in the 1960s until her death in the 1990s, Yoko was his most important subject. She has continued to be a major influence on his photography even after her death.

This exhibition explores Araki’s relationship with the subject he treasured so much and reflect on the “I photograph” that is the essence of Araki’s work. The exhibition title, Sentimental Journey, 1971-2017, refers to Araki Nobuyoshi’s “I photography,” beginning with his self publication of Sentimental Journey as a photo book in 1971, and to his life-long journey as a photographer.
