At the Leica Gallery Vienna (Walfischgasse 1, 1010 Vienna) OstLicht currently works by Nuboyoshi Araki.

Nobuyoshi Araki (*1940 in Tokyo) undisputedly ranks among the most radical and influential photographers of our time. In his oeuvre he has been exceptionally productive and innovative and is regarded an important figure in current art sphere far beyond the area of photography. The 66 photographs of his series Love by Leica, now presented at Leica Gallery Vienna, form one of his most exciting bodies of work.

The Love by Leica series is joint by a selection of Araki’s large format colour prints from the project Flowers and Jamorinsky (2005–2006), a continuation to his previous works devoted to flower motifs. The photographs relate to fading blossoms, decay, nostalgia and poesy.
