This is a selection of more than 150 of Arakis most important works from the 1970s to the present day, with an emphasis on the recent unpublished production. The book traces Nobuyoshi Arakis career from the 1970s to the present day, with an emphasis on recent production, which will be given broad exposure at the Tokyo Diary 2003-2007 series. Specifically, it comprises a collection of emblematic photographs (one per day), with a new series of nudes and elegant female portraits, and a number of stories set in traditional Japan, in which the bamboo forests and the sea immediately recall Okusais famous prints. Alongside these serial works there are portraits and street photographs taken in the 1960s and 1970s, in which Araki records Japanese society during its period of intense economic growth; there are also the new flower compositions and the classic bondage series that made him famous throughout the world.
