I Don't Mind If You Forget Me

I recently stumbled upon upon a book about the artist Yoshitomo Nara and his +graf A to Z exhibit in Tokyo. While flipping through the pages in the book store, I could have cared less that I couldn't read a word of it... I was so captivated by the photos. Within an old cider brewery, Nara constructed (with the help of the design firm, graf media) a miniature town! And hundreds of his whimsical beings populate the town. Borne of his imagination, it attracts the very old to the very young.

Doggy I searched online for photos of the inside of the exhibit but found none. The book, which is only for sale at amazon japan is stuffed full of them. I've never seen an exhibit so inspiring or fantastic; I only wish I could see it in person!

I have found that the best place to look for photos of the "undocumented" is on photo-sharing websites, such as flickr. Perhaps you could find what you are looking for there: http://flickr.com/search/?ss=1&w=all&q=%2Bgraf+A+to+Z+nara&m=text
