In this book two series of images Araki made for his Arakinema concept are being presented. The originals are slides Araki projected as films in an overlapping slide projection. Both are to be seen as one work and where released in 2005.
For me it was a unique chance to work on the reproduction of images of such a great master. Reproducing the vivid blues and purples in Blue period and the intense colours in Last Summer was definitely challenging. It is a matter of bending the limits of regular CMYK printing.
