Shokuji (The Banquet) was not one of Araki’s most important publications nor better known. The work was shot three years before its publication and is a mixed assembly of three different segments: color photography, four pages of text excerpting passages of Araki’s journals that detail what he had consumed, and a section of black-and-white photography. Monochrome photography begins with approaching death. What fastens the entire assembly together—as has done with dramatic potency in the past—is the presence of his wife Yoko. Or, in this instance, the absence of Yoko, who died of a uterine sarcoma at the age of forty-three. On the book’s last page, he has written in, “Yoko, on January 27th, 1990, at 11 a.m., died.” On the third spread of the book’s black-and-white section, Araki spells out the sum total of the book:
After she was released from the hospital, the food she prepared was all the more full of love. There is no doubt that she knew that she had only one month left to live. I had been shooting color with a macro lens with a ring strobe, which I changed to monochrome. One table lamp, a tripod, F32, one second. I can never forget the sound of that shutter’s one long second. The meal was a love affair to death.

Excerpt is from Ivan Vartanian's essay, "Dining - A Lovers’ Tryst," reproduced from Nobuyoshi Araki: The Banquet.

Featured image is reproduced from Errata Editions' <I>Nobuyoshi Araki: The Banquet</I>.First published in Japan in 1993, Nobuyoshi Araki’s The Banquet (Shokuji) offers a moving tribute to the photographer’s late wife, Yoko, through a photo-diary of the food they shared together in the last months of her life. The book is composed of three related sections: commercial color photographs of meals shot by Araki from 1985 onwards, using a ring flash and a macro lens; a (written) food diary; and black-and-white photographs taken at home, using only available light, a series Araki began after doctors told his wife she had only a month to live. As Martin Parr and Gerry Badger observe, “The obvious metaphor is to suggest that the color was leaving Araki’s world, but his intentions are not quite so simple. The retreat from color is a retreat from realism to romanticism....” This deeply personal diary of loss is here reprinted in its entirety along with an essay by Ivan Vartanian.Errata Editions' Books on Books series is an ongoing publishing project dedicated to making rare and out-of-print photography books accessible to students and photobook enthusiasts. These are not reprints or facsimiles but complete studies of the original books. Each volume in the series presents the entire content, page for page, of an original master bookwork which, up until now, has been too rare or expensive for most to experience. Through a mix of classic and contemporary titles, this series spans the breadth of photographic practice as it has appeared on the printed page and allows further study of the creation and meanings of these great works of art. Each volume in the series contains illustrations of every page in the original photobook, a new essay by an established writer on photography, production notes about the creation of the original edition and biographical and bibliographical information about each artist.
