#29 Nobuyoshi Araki
by Allison H.
His photographs are often erotic, or even pornographic sometimes. A lot of times his work involves bondage as well as the tendency to hang women from the ceiling. Beyond the facade of the appreciation of female body and all that sexually aroused visuals, there is something direct, strong, and filled with sentiments. As if I can feel the heat in the room, or the sounds outside on the street. Looking at some of his photographs, those with scenes, I can hear the summer whispering, as it goes away. Fade to silent.
