NOBUYOSHI ARAKI

BIOGRAPHY

Nobuyoshi Araki (b.1940,Tokio) is a contemporary Japanese photographer known for his erotic imagery and preoccupation with his hometown. In addition to city scenes from Tokyo, he is particularly interested in the portrayal of women of all social classes. His nude photography has repeatedly led to controversy and made Araki the Enfant terrible of the Japanese art world. Similar to Helmut Newton, Araki is interested in subversive themes in the provocative staging of female acts - such as the bondage in the Japanese Kinbaku style.

Araki studied photography at Chiba University and worked after graduating in 1963, first as a commercial photographer and later as a freelance photojournalist. Araki finally gave up the press photography, focused on nudes and published numerous illustrated books. Sentimental Journey (1971) tells in pictures of the honeymoon with his wife Aoki Yoko, who made him a photographer. Araki lives in Tokyo, the city whose liveliness is a source of constant inspiration for him to this day.
