Nobuyoshi Araki


Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940) is one of the most recognized photographers in Japan who has focused his work on the themes of Eros, Thanatos as well as the impermanence in life since the 1960s. Exemplified by up-close, personal snapshots of naked women gazing emptily into the camera, Araki photographed the extremes of reality and fiction, Eros (life/ sex) and Thanatos (death), capturing the opposing elements of the two.
