Japan's most famous photographer, and one of photography's most prolific bookmakers, Nobuyoshi Araki is notorious for his erotic photographs of women in bondage. Japanese bondage, which differs from western bondage in its orchestration of knots and binding to arouse specific points upon the body, offers visual as well as erotic rewards that Araki has scrutinized with great zeal. Araki is able to bestow eroticism upon all manner of natural imagery, but is also celebrated for series such as Sentimental Journey and Winter Journey, which record his marriage and the death of his wife. Driven by an attraction to the uncensored facts of Eros and Thanatos, Araki has always made humanity the center of his concerns; but at several junctures in his career, the authorities have evinced indifference to such motives, removing his work from sale and arresting curators for exhibiting his work. Nonetheless, the craft of Araki's photography is not in doubt, and in recent years, his work has expanded to accommodate broader aspirations, inflected by age: "When I photograph unhappiness I only capture unhappiness," he told Nan Goldin in an interview, "but when I photograph happiness, life, death and everything else comes through." With over 300 photographs, this monumental survey provides a careful selection from his most important photographic cycles, from Satchin and Sentimental Journey to Winter Journey, Cityscapes Polart, Sensual Flowers, Bondage and others, to his most recent works.
Born in Tokyo in 1940, Nobuyoshi Araki worked at an advertising agency in the 1960s, where he met his future wife, Yoko Araki, the subject of his now classic volume Sentimental Journey. Her last days were recorded in a 1990 volume called Winter Journey. At the age of 70 his prolificness remains undimmed: "It is my past and the lust for life that is pushing me to take pictures now."

Book Description Silvana Editoriale, 2010. Brossura. Condition: nuovo. Il volume accompagna una monumentale retrospettiva che il Museo d’Arte di Lugano dedica a Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940), uno dei fotografi più noti e celebrati in tutto il mondo, nell’ambito di un più vasto progetto incentrato sulla cultura e sull’arte giapponese. La poliedrica e incessante produzione dell’artista è documentata attraverso un’accurata selezione dei suoi più importanti cicli fotografici, a cominciare da Satchin, la sua prima celebre serie del 1965, passando per SentimentalJourney, Winter Journey, Cityscapes, Polart, Sensual Flowers, Bondage, ecc., fino alla sua più recente produzione. Nelle immagini di Araki – dove non solo i nudi femminili che lo hanno reso celebre, ma anche i fiori, le pietanze, gli oggetti carichi di colore, sembrano assumere qualità carnali – si aggiorna e rivive con forza conturbante l’essenza dell’erotismo giapponese tradizionalmente tramandato dalle immagini Shunga (stampe e dipinti a soggetto erotico, che raggiunsero la massima fioritura nel periodo Edo). L’aspetto più realistico dell’opera di Araki è affidato ad alcune fotografie realizzate dall’artista nei bassifondi di Tokyo dove la sessualità si esprime nelle forme più disinibite e crude, e che offrono interessante documentazione della società giapponese nelle sue manifestazioni più private.Il catalogo, introdotto dai testi dei curatori, è completato da apparati biobibliografici. Lugano, ottobre 2010 - febbario 2011 Nobuyoshi Araki ranks today as one of the most well-known and celebrated artist photographers in the world with more than four hundred publications to his name. In addition to the autobiographical series - includingSentimental Journey / Winter Journey, which documents the relationship between the artist and his wife Yoko from the day of their marriage till the tragic illness and premature death of Yoko in 1990 - the present volume documents the urban landscapes, the suggestive images of flowers and food, the poetic series dedicated to the sky and, of course, the series of female nudes and bondage which are, more than any other of his subjects, so clearly linked to his renown. Among his latest works, are included in the catalogue the series dedicated to his beloved cat Chiro and a series of photographs over which the artist intervenes with calligraphy, thus making them unique. The sometime extremely dense layout of the present publication, with 745 photographs, mirrors Araki's urgency to capture the continuos transformation of reality, through a continuous photographic documentation.
