Italian publisher Skira released a comprehensive new title featuring over 500 photographs by the famed Japanese photographer, Nobuyoshi Araki. The 200-page book dubbed The Araki Effect explores Araki’s intimate and subjective photography, highlighting a vast number of projects including his rousing Sulphurous series dedicated to the art of Kinbaku (Japanese bondage).

Highlights include the artist’s Subway of Love series of photographs featuring black and white portraits of random commuters in the Tokyo subway between 1963 and 1972, Dead Reality (2016) series of copperplate images portraying his wife Yoko, and one of his more recent collection of images under the title Araki’s Paradise from 2019.

The Araki Effect is now available for purchase on Skira’s website for €38.25 EUR (approx. $43 USD) and Amazon for approximately $25 USD.

Elsewhere in art, the Tate Modern is launching a major retrospective of Andy Warhol’s work.
