Having published over 350 books (and still more every year) Araki is considered one of the most prolific artists alive or dead in Japan and around the world
He is also known by the nickname Arākī. Araki studied photography during his college years and then went to work at the advertising agency Dentsu, where he met his future wife, the essayist Yōko Araki. Having published over 350 books (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.
He became famous for Un Voyage Sentimental (1971), a series of photos depicting both banal and deeply intimate scenes of his wife during their honeymoon. A number of his works feature young women in sexualized situations: Kinbaku, a series from 1979, features 101 photographs of women in rope bondage.
Japanese bondage is different than Western bondage in its knotting and aimed to arouse specific points upon the body. Araki was fascinated by the tension between Eros and Thanatos, so it can be said that the very essence of his practice is a state of human being from the perspective of sexuality and desire. The book Love and Death covers a number of over three hundred photographs, so this monumental survey provides a thorough selection of his most important photographic series.
He is also known by the nickname Arākī (アラーキー). Araki has published over 500 books. He is known primarily for his photography that blends eroticism and bondage in a fine art context. Araki was born in Tokyo on May 25, 1940. He studied film and photography at Chiba University from 1959, receiving a degree in 1963
