“I wish I was a god with a thousand arms, each one with a camera.”
So says Nobuyoshi Araki, who with more than 350 photo books stakes the claim as the most published photographer in the world. While his work spans varied subjects, his erotic work is what made his reputation, one that is infamous as well as notorious. Provoking the sexual prudery of Japan, his work has shaped an entire culture and made him the country’s face of sexual liberation.
Filmmaker Travis Klose, Björk, Takeshi Kitano, Daido Moriyama, Richard Kern and other collaborators and friends give further insight into understanding the life and mind of this artistic dynamo. Arakimentari is not merely a biographical exploration, but more of an attempt to understand one man’s artistic life and character and through him learn something about the nature of genius.
