Araki. 40th Ed.


Spellbound by Araki

The ultimate collection

Decades’ worth of images have been distilled down to 512 pages of photographs in this ultimate retrospective collection of Nobuyoshi Araki's work, selected by the artist himself.

First published as a Limited Edition and now back in a new format to celebrate TASCHEN’s 40th anniversary, the curation delves deep into Araki’s best-known imagery: Tokyo street scenes; faces and foods; colorful, sensual flowers; female genitalia; and the Japanese art of kinbaku, or bondage. As girls lay bound but defiant and glistening petals assume suggestive shapes, Araki plays constantly with patterns of subjugation and emancipation, death and desire and with the slippage between serene image and shock.

Describing his bondage photographs as “a collaboration between the subject and the photographer”, Araki seeks to come closer to his female subjects through photography, emphasizing the role of spoken conversation between himself and the model. In his native Japan, he has attained cult status for many women who feel liberated by his readiness to photograph the expression of their desire.

Nobuyoshi Araki was born in Tokyo in 1940. Given a camera by his father at the ripe age of twelve, Araki has been taking pictures ever since. He studied photography and film at Chiba University and went into commercial photography soon after graduating. In 1970 he created his famous Xeroxed Photo Albums, which he produced in limited editions and sent to friends, art critics, and people selected randomly from the telephone book. Over the years, his bold, unabashed photographs of his private life have been the object of a great deal of controversy and censorship (especially in his native Japan), a fact that has not fazed the artist nor diminished his influence. To date, Araki has published over 400 books of his work.

Such a good value. Great pictures of ‘crazy’ Araki-san in a very handy high quality book format.

Eye Catching Beauty

Samantha,27 ottobre 2021
I have followed a lot of Araki's work and the 40th anniversary edition is a real birds eye view of his culture, mind and perspective on the beauty of women. The introduction to the book is a great way to see through the eyes of the man behind the camera. Great!

Amazing book

A great compilation of the work of Araki. Absolute must-have for photography lovers!

Excellent compendium

Rodrigo,27 ottobre 2021
The photograph selection contained in this volume is great. It is a journey through Araki's mind and through Japan's recent sociocultural transformation. I like the way his artistic shots are interwoven with day-to-day photos of what Araki sees and captures as if his eyes and the lens were one and the same. An excellent volume celebrating TASCHEN's 40. A collectible at a an unbeatable price!
