During one of his stays in Tokyo, Romain Slocombe went looking for Nobuyoshi Araki, in hopes of making a film about him. This book presents the photographic story of this journey, followed by Slocombe’s diary.
Trusting the signs as he wanders the city, Slocombe encounters friends who become his models and willingly take part in his “medical art”.
We follow him and get lost in the floating world, in the poetic depths of Tokyo nights ruled by desire.
