From Araki’s first series, “Sachin” portrays a boy on his back on the ground, doubled in laughter because his older brother is tickling him. Other photographs from the series show the boys playing around the run-down apartment blocks of the Shitamachi area. Conveying a sense of nostalgia for childhood the Sachin series won a Taiyo award for photographic reportage.
