Nobuyoshi Araki (1940) is a Japanese photographer from Tokyo. Araki is best known for his photographs of Japanese women that are bound in Japanese bondage, often with props like little dinosaur or cat figures. His work is highly erotic, even his Flowers series for which he photographed flowers covered with different kinds of pigments. In the past few years he has focussed on creating still-life pictures of different locations, in combination with his signature dinosaur and cat figures. Araki has published over 350 books of his work.
