Nobuyoshi Araki

Nobuyoshi Araki is a prolific photographer who has produced thousands of photographs over the course of his career. He became famous for ?Un Voyage Sentimental? (1971), a series of photos depicting both banal and deeply intimate scenes of his wife during their honeymoon. A number of his works feature young women in sexualized situations: ?Kinbaku?, a series from 1979, features 101 photographs of women in rope bondage. He typically works in black-and-white photography, and his hallmark style is deliberately casual. ?Rather than shooting something that looks like a professional photograph, I want my work to feel intimate, like someone in the subject?s inner circle shot them,? he says. More recently, Araki has been working on a series titled ?Faces of Japan? (2009-) in which the artist photographs 500 to 1,000 people in each of Japan?s prefectures.
