"The work of Nobuyoshi Araki is virtually impossible to sum up in a few words. But here goes... Gritty reportage, rope bondage, dead cats, naked women, naked women drinking coke, and the occasional naked woman covered in small lizards. Phew!... If nothing else, Nobuyoshi Araki: Self, Life, Death is guaranteeed to cause heated debate!"-Practial Photography

Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
The shibari (Japanese rope bondage) photos are my favorite. They are for adult viewing, but actually not nearly as explicit as what you could see in adult japanese photography. They have a simple, serene beauty to them.
The book is of extraordinary quality and makes a lovely gift.
SELF LIFE DEATH is an abridged edition of the book published for the Barbican exhibition of over 4000 photographs. More than any other exhibition in recent memory, 'Araki: Self, Life, Death' came closest to an unmediated glimpse inside the artist's mind. Since his teens, in the 1950s, Araki has never been without a camera; he uses more than 40 rolls of film a day and has recorded everything: from the immense changes in the Tokyo neighborhood where he grew up to the prolonged illness and death of his wife. Like Andy Warhol (another prolific self-promoter) Araki's career started in advertising - at Japan's most influential agency, Dentsu. There, the visual began to obsess him even more than might normally be expected in a society dominated by imagery.
In these pages the viewer sees through Araki's eyes and feels a participant in his compulsion to record everything: snails to flowers, faces to genitals, cats to food. The style also changes from one image to another: composed to spontaneous, black and white to color, serious to playful. The idea of applying color to prints is now an established part of his repertoire. To Araki, a black and white image represents death; it is 'like killing the subject.' He revives the model in his own way, and to his own liking, by adding 'sexual desire and passion' in the form of splashes of color to the photograph. This sense of playfulness in his studio work stands in stark contrast to the stern seriousness of other 'transgressive' photographers such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin, and is one reason why Araki is taken less seriously as an artist.
As an introduction to the rich field of the art of Nobuyoshi Araki this book is probably the best. From the works in this well annotated monograph the reader can easily elect to pursue other books on a particular theme. As critic Rob Johnston has said, `In the case of Araki, quantity is quality. His interests are as comprehensive as life itself - as full of happiness and frivolity as of gloom and despair. This retrospective also confirms just how little we understand about the Japanese sensibility and how little insight we have into the unintended consequences of our own repressed attitudes to sex.' Grady Harp, July 12
