Erratic Photography: Nobuyoshi Araki

Here is another photographer I think is really interesting, and whom I see a lot at art fairs, Nobuyoshi Araki. You have probably seen his work before.

He is very influential on many of the painters I know. A lot of his work is kind of kinky, but also can be playful and whimsical. He says that many his photographs are like foreplay, but that the really good ones are orgasms. Here is an interesting interview he did years ago with Nan Goldin.
