Nobuyoshi Araki is one of Japans best known photographers, and one of the most controversial artists at the moment. His pictures are about sex, beauty and death. Trough his work (via his "Photo-Me") he tells stories between fiction, wishes and truth. Always explicit, very personal and on the edge to porn. Porn-art or art-porn? Who cares? Sexuality is a strong power, including fear, hope, anger and love, beauty and ugliness, life and death... a groundless source for art.
Not only Bjoerk is a fan of Araki, but also Lady Gaga got a shooting with him. Japans "Vogue Hommes" issue from September 09 showed these great pictures.
