Last I went to Hongkong, I took along a small book of photographs by Raghu Rai, as a gift for my friend. In an effort to tell me about photographers of that region, my friend introduced me to Nobuyoshi Araki or simply known as Araki. A prolific Japanese photographer, Araki’s work extends from portraits to street photographs to nudes. Facinated, I got myself a small book by Araki, which I’m going to write about.
Araki is a man who deals with life and filters it with his own being. Sentimental, instinctive and curious, his work is what every photographer wants to find inside of him. A great addition to your library, I’d recommend this book any day.
