Nobuyoshi Araki - Photo-Crazy A
The fact that Araki Nobuyoshi has published over 500 photobooks as of 2017 lends credence to his insatiable appetite.

This volume coincides with an exhibition of Araki’s work at Tokyo’s Opera City Gallery and offers an overview of his recent oeuvre, which deals in particular with life and death. Among the featured series are “Dai Koga”, “One Hundred Views of Flowers”, the video archive “POLANOGRAPHY”, “Captive Women in a Pleasure Garden”, and “Non-Diary Diary”. Includes an interview.
