Synopsis: TASCHEN's 25th anniversary - Special edition! Special budget abridged edition! ""This book reveals everything about me. It's been a 60-year contract. Photography is love and death-that'll be my epitaph."" -Araki The subject is Japanese photographer Araki, a man who talks about life through photographs. His powerful oeuvre, decades' worth of images, has been pared down to 540 pages of photographs which tell the story of Araki and comprise the ultimate retrospective collection of his work. Known best for his intimate, snapshot-style images of women often tied up with ropes (kinbaku, Japanese rope-tying art) and of colorful, sensual flowers, Araki is an artist who reacts strongly to his emotions and uses photography to experience them more fully. Obsessed with women, Araki seeks to come closer to them through photography, using ropes like an embrace and the click of the shutter like a kiss. His work is at once shocking and mysteriously tender; a deeply personal artist, Araki is not afraid of his emotions nor of showing them to the world. This large-format special budget edition includes most of the picture material from the original 2000 ? limited edition, for only 49,99 ?! Interviews by J?r?me Sans Extensive bibliography and biography section
About the Author: About the photographer: Nobuyoshi Araki was born in Tokyo in 1940 and was given a camera, at the age of 12, by his father. He studied photography and film at Chiba University and went into commercial photography soon after graduating. In 1970 he created his famous Xeroxed Photography Book, which he produced in a limited edition and sent to friends, art critics and people randomly selected from the phone book. Over the years, Araki’s bold unabashed photographs have been the object of a great deal of censorship, especially in his native Japan, a fact that has not hindered him or diminished his influence in the least. To date, Araki has published more than 250 books of his work. TASCHEN’s Araki is the most comprehensive and lavish volume yet.
