Nobuyoshi Araki

Nobuyoshi Araki was born in Tokyo, studied photography from 1959-1963 and in 1963 went to work at the advertising agency Dentsu, where in 1968 he met his future wife, the essayist Yōko Aoki.

Having published over 350 books by 2005, and still more every year, Araki is considered one of the most prolific artists alive or dead in Japan and around the world. Many of his photographs are erotic; some have been called pornographic.
Among his photography books are Sentimental Journey (1971), and Tokyo Lucky Hole (1990). Sentimental Journey “1972-1992” is a diary of life with his wife Yōko until she died of ovarian cancer in 1990. The first part of Sentimental Journey sees the couple embarking on married life – their honeymoon and having sex. Pictures taken during her last days were published in Winter Journey.
In 1981, Araki directed High School Girl Fake Diary, a Roman Porno film for Nikkatsu studio. The film proved to be a disappointment both to Araki’s fans, and to fans of the pink film genre.

The Icelandic musician Björk is an admirer of Araki’s work, and served as one of his models. At her request he photographed the cover and inner sleeve pages of her 1997 remix album, Telegram. More recently, he has photographed pop singer Lady Gaga for the book Vogue Hommes Japan.

Araki’s work is held in the following public collections Tate (London) and in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
