Nobuyoshi Araki: It Was Once a Paradise

Text by Marcel Feil, Robbert Roos.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Nobuyoshi Araki: It Was Once a Paradise</I>.Arguably Japanís greatest living photographer and the author of over 425 books to date, Nobuyoshi Araki (born 1940) is internationally known for his erotic images of tied-up, beautiful nude women. It Was Once a Paradise presents Arakiís most recent photographic series, 40 diptychs that offer a meditation on sex and grief. Each diptych couples a new color photograph of a semi-nude woman in bondage with a black-and-white still life from his personal diary, a somber image taken on his Tokyo balcony: the site of his former private paradise haunted by his deceased wife Yoko and his cat Chiro. Nostalgic ruins contrast with erotic hope, forming a contrast that is echoed in the packaging of the book, which has been designed to be read in either direction, and comes with a choice of two different dust jackets.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Conscientious Photography Magazine

Joerg Colberg

There are quite a few extremely beautiful images in this book, and some of the pairings are amazingly smart. On top of that, It Was Once A Paradise is an incredibly lush production, a beautiful object on its own.
