Publisher's Description

The year is 1964, and Nobuyoshi Araki is seeking out Japanese children at play in the streets. Their unbridled young energy is tangible, their camaraderie evident. The boys run and shout, poking fun and pull faces, each daring the other in an game of restless enthusiasm, all set against a backdrop of concrete, rubbish, and steel. Exactly who and where they are is irrelevant the narrative of these photographs lies in the nostalgia for childhood that this series evokes. Only 24 years old at the time, Araki skilfully captures these fleeting young moments forever.

'After his debut work Sachin won the Taiyo Award in 1964, Nobuyoshi Araki’s photos had been selected for publication in a magazine. Due to the printing methods of the time, they asked he send in the actual negatives, which were then never sent back to him. While in 1994, Araki’s debut work was re-issued as “Sachin” - an “outtake”, based on negatives he had held on to. The original work seemed lost forever.

More than 50 years later, the 2017 photobook Sachin, published by Kawade and designed by Satoshi Machiguchi, features a new selection based on the actual, original photos for which Araki received the Taiyo Award at the very beginning of his career.'
