About the photographer, Nobuyoshi Araki (*1940 in Minowa, Tokyo)

Nobuyoshi ARAKI (jap. 荒木 経惟 Araki Nobuyoshi) is one of Japan's most important photographers. The artist gained fame especially in the genre of nude photography. The son of a shoe salesman, he studied photography at Chiba University from 1959 to 1963. Early on he admired the French photographers BRASSAI and Henri CARTIER-BRESSON as well as Jean-Luc Godard. His own career began in 1964 with pictures of children in the city, then he photographed his own honeymoon. From these photos he created the now legendary book 'Sentimental Journey'. In the 1970s he broke away from press and reportage photography and began to show the interpersonal. He documented the abysses of the soul and quickly found access to eroticism. One of his most famous models is the Icelandic singer Björk, who admires his work. Among other things, he created pictures for her album 'Telegram', which was released in 1996.
