Araki, “I, Photography”
Bad-boy Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki is best known for erotic depictions ranging from bondage scenes to images of Yakuza members having sex with prostitutes. Still, even with his heavily fetishized approach to sexuality, he’s always framed the subject within the larger context of the natural world—as in this show, where floral still lifes and expanses of sky share space with paint-doused images of female nudes and close-ups of genitalia.
