Product description

Review

'The work of Nobuyoshi Araki is virtually impossible to sum up in a few words. But here goes ... gritty reportage, rope bondage, dead cats, naked women, naked women drinking coke, and the occasional naked woman covered in small lizards. Phew! ... If nothing else, Nobuyoshi Araki: Self, Life, Death is guaranteeed to cause heated debate!' (Practial Photography)
