Araki by Araki is a record of the work of Nobuyoshi Araki, self-styled ‘photomaniac’ and permanent enfant terrible of the Japanese art world. Published to mark the artist’s sixty-third birthday, this volume features 2002 pictures covering his entire career from 1963 to 2002. Sex-trade voyeur, recorder of Tokyo cityscapes, chronicler of married life, or experimental photo artist – no matter what your image of Araki, this collection will reveal new aspects of his talent, as it traces his unique vision over 40 prolific years. The book includes an original commentary by Araki, who speaks with a unique voice, somewhere between Austin Powers and Keith Moon.
