From the publisher:
"Decades’ worth of images have been distilled down to 512 pages of photographs in this ultimate retrospective collection of Nobuyoshi Araki's work, selected by the artist himself.
First published as a limited edition and now back in a new format to celebrate TASCHEN’s 40th anniversary, the curation delves deep into Araki’s best-known imagery: Tokyo street scenes; faces and foods; colourful, sensual flowers; female genitalia; and the Japanese art of kinbaku, or bondage. As girls lie bound but defiant and glistening petals assume suggestive shapes, Araki plays with patterns of subjugation and emancipation, death and desire, and the slippage between serene image and shock."
