    DescriptionNobuyoshi Araki is arguably Japan's greatest living photographer, and certainly its most controversial. The more than 300 books he has published over the last four decades attest to his inexhaustible creative energy, while his work, which often challenges social taboos surrounding sex and death, has drawn critical attention both at home and abroad. This new abridged edition of Phaidon's highly acclaimed Self, Life, Death, includes the finest and most iconic images from throughout Araki's career, all presented in a beautiful, expanded format that allows the pictures room to breathe. This accessible and affordable format will bring a new audience of students and photography enthusiasts to the work of this influential photographer.

    Review quote
    'the work of Nobuyoshi Araki is virtually impossible to sum up in a few words. But here goes ... gritty reportage, rope bondage, dead cats, naked women, naked women drinking coke, and the occasional naked woman covered in small lizards. Phew! ... If nothing else, Nobuyoshi Araki: Self, Life, Death is guaranteeed to cause heated debate!' Practial Photography
