Nobuyoshi Araki (b. 1940 in Tokyo) worked in advertising after completing his studies in photography and film at Chiba University in Tokyo, devoting himself exclusively to photography as of the mid-1960s. His oeuvre spans erotic portraits of women, artificial still-lifes, photographs of plants, documentary-style depictions of everyday life, and architectural photography but also very personal, diaristic photographs of himself and his deceased wife Yoko. Nobuyoshi Araki attained international fame, however, as a photographer of nudes and erotic scenes. He has published around 400 books over the course of his career. His works have been shown in innumerable international exhibitions and are part of important collections worldwide. Nobuyoshi Araki lives and works in Tokyo.
