Collection: Nobuyoshi Araki

Japanese artist Nobuyoshi Araki is one of the most celebrated figures of photography. His irreverent and sexually explicit images have frequently ignited controversy both in Japan, and abroad. Araki's provocative photographs depict both banal and deeply erotic subjects ranging from flowers and Tokyo street scenes to female bondage and his own biographical accounts.

Nobuyoshi Araki's photography with its unwavering vision and obsession with portraying his own experiences, both sexual and otherwise, ran counter to the prevailing documentary impulse of post-war Japan. Araki developed an autobiographical, deeply personal narrative mode of image-making which he termed 'I-photography' (shi-shashin), a direct response to the 'I-novel' (shi-shōsetsu), a confessional genre which dominated Japanese literature in the twentieth century.

During his early career, Araki began photographing local children in the Shitamachi neighbourhood of Tokyo, a run-down area that had largely escaped the urban reinvigoration of the city in the lead up to the 1964 Olympics. Araki was awarded the inaugural Taiyo Award for this early series, 'Satchin' (1964), depicting the boisterous antics of children playing against the backdrop of pre-war apartment blocks.

Araki is also a recipient of the Shashin-no-kai Prize from the Photographic Society of Japan (1990); the 7th Higashikawa Prize (1991); the Japan Inter-Design Forum Grand Prix (1994); the Austrian Decoration of Honor for Science and Arts (2008); the 6th ANGO Awards (2012) and the 54th Mainichi Art Award (2012).
