DP by Araki - or a magic moment that is going to be hard to top

Dear Shaded Viewers,

NDP Araki

In a trip full of many magical moments, seeing old friends, making new friends, experiencing the birth of this year's cherry blossoms, it is going to be pretty hard to top my meeting with the iconic artist/photographer, Nobuyoshi Araki and sharing a cinema like experience at his favorite Karaoke bar. Araki said that I will be in his next book. He has already produced more than 400 books. We will have to wait and see for that but I can tell you that my encounter with him and his beautiful girlfriend, KaoRi is something that is going to be pretty hard to top. Many thanks to my sweet friend and collaborator, Akiko Hamaoka. for making it happen.
