Nobuyoshi Araki is a fine-art photographer known for his famous photographs from Tokyo’s famous "red light distinct". Often uses traditional Japanese motives and techniques such as woodblock printing, witch depicts remarkably explicit sex acts in the decorative graphic style the views often perceive them as scandal. Even though I don't like the objectification of the female naked body, I value the fact that he is trying to appreciate and show the authenticity of the sex worker's job and remind people that is still relevant and functioning. What I’m interested in is the big aspect of psychology involved in them depicting on the sexual obsession that lurk below the surface of the society and representing Japan and the hidden sexual culture by promoting explicit scenes.
