Nobuyoshi Araki
Nobuyoshi Araki (born May 25, 1940) is a Japanese photographer, pornographer, and contemporary artist from Tokyo. He has been widely accused by feminist groups of being a misogynist because of the content of many of his photographs.
Araki studied photography during his college years and then went to work at Dentsu (a Japanese advertising agency) where he also met his wife Yoko. After they were married, Araki published a book of pictures of his wife taken during their honeymoon titled Sentimental Journey. She died in 1990 of cancer. Pictures taken during her last days were published in a book titled Winter Journey.
