Remarques & avis / ReviewNobuyoshi ARAKI and Tokyo's life: day-walking and night-partying, from beautiful still-life shots to most daring nude, bondage, masturbation and sex shots (censorship did not do its job thoroughly, even leaving some male genitals in the process). A constant and comfortable 4-pictures-per-spread lay-out, fine printing & paper. Certainly pushes Araki's 1980s photography concept to its best. One of our all-time favorites.

ARAKI Nobuyoshi et la vie de Tokyo — marches diurnes et fêtes nocturnes, de magnifiques natures mortes aux clichés de nu, kinbaku, masturbation et de sexe les plus osés (la censure ne fit pas son travail correctement, laissant même des verges dans la foulée). Un format constant et agréable de 4 photos par double page, bons papier et impression. Pousse le concept de photographie d'Araki dans les années 1980 à perfection. Un de nos favoris toutes catégories confondues.

Divers / Misc. — 'Laid out as a diary, the photos are in fact often inaccurately and deliriously dated (and yes, some are even dated 1995). Araki appears in many of the photos.' (IIZAWA Kohtaro, ARAKI's Illustrated Bibliography, in déjà-vu #4 : ARAKI Nobuyoshi (1991), p.86)
