BIOGRAPHIE

 

Né en 1940 à Tokyo, Araki photographie ses obsessions : les femmes, le sexe et la mort.

Artiste libre et décomplexé avec un penchant certain pour les femmes nues, attachées, jambes écartées, il a suscité de nombreuses polémiques et s’est souvent heurté à la censure.

Artiste prolifique, il photographie toute la journée, tout ce qu’il voit, tous ceux qu’il croise.

Artiste prolifique, il photographie toute la journée, tout ce qu’il voit, tous ceux qu’il croise.

« Mon corps est devenu un appareil. » dit-il.

Il s’amuse même à raconter qu’aussitôt sorti du ventre de sa mère, il s’est retourné et a photographié son vagin !


Son œuvre est comme sa vie, une performance visuelle.
