About Nobuyoshi Araki

Nobuyoshi Araki (Japanese, b. 1940) studied film and photography at Chilba University and worked in advertising before devoting himself to photography in the early 1970s. He is best known for his photographs of women contorted by a form of Japanese bondage called Kinbaku. Described as violent, pornographic and erotic these photographs draw on 17th-century Japanese woodblock prints called Shunga, also known for their erotic content.
