“We shape our buildings. Therefore they shape us.”
– Winston Churchill –
Perspective is a word that we use when referring to visual art and help us highlighting infinite points from where we observe our surroundings. In the specific case of Nobuyoshi Araki, anything he decides to portray is nothing but astonishing.
“James Baldwin said that the artistic image is not intended to represent the thing itself, but, rather, the reality of the force the thing contains. I felt for so long that I wasn’t saying or seeing myself enough in my work and I was holding back. I wanted to create this paracosm that was somewhere I would want to live in and thrive in.”
