ARAKI FOR SUPREME
Nobuyoshi Araki is a Japanese photographer born in Tokyo in 1940. Araki started his career as a commercial photographer before turning to diary-like documentation which included subjects ranging from the mundanity of everyday life to Japan’s underground sex industry. Continuing his exploration of erotic subjects, Araki incorporated Kinbaku, the Japanese art of bondage with other traditional Japanese themes to create what is now his defining aesthetic. With over 350 books published, Araki is one of the most prolific artists living or dead.
