Birth and Present. A studio portrait of Yoshitomo Nara

Artist Yoshitomo Nara’s work has received unprecendented international recognition in recent years and has been presented in many publications, yet none have offered such an intimate portrait of the artist and his process. Photographer Mie Morimoto worked with Nara for six months to document the development of nuance and texture of his art, including his signature enfant terribles paintings and weeping dog sculptures. The book includes never before published excerpts from Nara’s Journals and revelatory photographs documenting the body of work included in the travelling exhibition I Don’t Mind If You Forget Me.
