Nobuyoshi Araki 

About Arak: is an artist, pornographer and diarist. I am drawn to his work related to eros. He has been called an erotomaniac. His astonishing explicit images of trussed up prostitutes, shots of himself and others engaged in a sexual act, close-ups photographs of genitalia and even more discrete images of flowers and fruits. He even captured his wife at the point of climax. For me this is true art. It reveals the most private aspect of his life with pride and dignity.

 

Why do they come across as erotic? Because I shot them. That’s what my photos are.
