The famed Provoke-era photographer Nobuyoshi Araki is known for his gritty erotic photography, but a part of his oeuvre has much to do with the Japanese capital, Tokyo.
The series "Tokyo" is one Araki's earliest independent projects, containing rarely seen photographs from the photographer. It marks as the beginning of Araki's relentless exploration of the city and urban life.
One would notice how the artist would combine portraits of strangers and passers-by, showing Araki's observant eye and perceptiveness of the street life. The 60's was an important time for Tokyo --one of the first and rare times the Japanese have shackled away from the government in favor of alternative ideas and principles in society and politics. Araki contrasts private and public, clothed and naked, intimate and distant as he chameleons into an anonymous spectator.
