Recently, I’ve had emails from readers wanting to know more about that “weirdo” guy from Japan who takes photos of naked women….
Well, I don’t know if he’s a weirdo, or even if he’s a dirty old man….this much I do know, is that he has been called many, many names in his time, and quite possibly it’s fair to speculate that’s what has made him what he is today.
He is of course none other than Nobuyoshi Araki, whom we have talked about before here. But other than actually talking to him personally, something which I haven’t been able to do so far, there is not much more new stuff about him available.
As some readers say, there are aspects of his work that border on the very thin line between what is acceptable and what isn’t. I know last time I posted some of his work here, it raised objections from some people….so this time around, I have tried not to depict anything that is too, shall we say, vulgar?
I won’t go into his life etc….that has been done before. rather, let’s look at his work here, selected from flickr.com…..in my view, I always learn something new from looking at his shots, which of course is what he wants his work to be accepted as.
