"'Inochi no Chibusa' - 19 Survivors of Breast Cancer and Reconstructive Surgery (...)
'Inochi no chibusa' collects photographs of 19 different nude women. However, ARAKI takes a back seat to his own subjects, whose lives and stories are the main focus of the book.
Produced in association with the STP project of Japan, 'The Inochi no chibusa' shows the strength of these 19 women, who have overcome the sorrow and stress of breast cancer to live full lives. As a cancer survivor (and vivacious personality) himself, ARAKI is a fitting choice to take these photographs, which simply brim over with life.
The women represent a wide range of ages and locations all over Japan, including Okinawa.
Each woman has written a page of text about her experience, which is printed at the back of the book along with information about breast cancer." (publisher's note)

In 'Inochi no Chibusa' steht nicht die Nackheit der von einem der berühmtesten Fotografen Japans fotografierten Damen im Vordergrund, sondern die Tatsache, dass sämtliche abgebildeten Frauen - wie ARAKI - ihre eigene Krebserkrankung überwunden haben. Zu den Schwarz-Weiß-Aufnahmen gibt es auch von jeder Frau einen Textbeitrag, dieser ist leider nur in Japanisch verfasst.

'Inochi no Chibusa' sticht aus ARAKIs Gesamtwerk heraus und steht in engem thematischen Zusammenhang mit 'Shamaatsu 2011', das ebenfalls bei Café Lehmitz Photobooks erhältlich ist.
