Bondage anyone?

The Reality Show By Araki
on Nowness.com.



I'm loving this video by the master of erotic art Nobuyoshi Araki. Best known for his provocative photographs of the art of Japanese rope tying (kinbaku). His works are controversial and I guarantee you, will illicit some kind of reaction from the viewer.

Here he is shooting the second issue of limited-edition Tokyo-based style magazine The Reality Show.

My first introduction of his work was at his major exhibition at the Barbican Gallery. I recall my reaction from that day as a mixture of wonder, fascination and curiosity. Araki’s work confronts taboo subjects such as sex, nudity and death head on - no apologies.

Strong stuff!
