Nobuyoshi Araki: Behind Legend and Controversy

2017-10-02 2

Perhaps, what's so interesting about the Japanese photographer is his work both continuously criticized as artistic and scrutinized as pornographic. Two entities that label Nobuyoshi Araki as a photographer, and it has long followed him since his Provoke days. But who is he, really?

In this video, the Araki we know is cast aside, as personal, reflections about life, love, and photography are disclosed by the photographer himself. He truly is an artist that is more than the eye, as he forever holds dear "Sentimental Journey", a personal diary of his life with his late wife, Yoko, who died of ovarian cancer in 1990.
