Author information

Born in Minowa, Tokyo, in 1940, NOBUYOSHI ARAKI is known worldwide as a photographer of genius. Reviewing his work of the last forty years while choosing the pictures for this book, he came to the conclusion that "photomaniac" would be a more accurate description.

Review quote

"This book offers an opportunity to witness the evolution of Araki's work as understood by the artist himself." -THE Magazine."..An unflinching leer into urban Japan's unique sexual underworld." -Nerve.com"He possesses the almost magical ability to transform the most mundane details into objects of fascination, to impregnate them with a raw sexual energy.... This mischievous photographer provokes viewers with images of the female form that are often oddly sensuous and objective at the same time, both erotica and cerebral. Ultimately, Araki presents us with a puzzle: the naked human psyche itself." -The Japan Times
