* Nobuyoshi ARAKI "Hitozuma no Shashin" - "Someone's Wife" 2013 Photobook Ltd Ed 500


Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. "Hitozuma no Shashin" - “Erotic Photos of Someone Else's Wife.” Japan: 2013, First Edition, HB, no dj as issued, 16 cm x 21 cm, 160 pp, b/w images (with added color paint by Araki). Limited to 500 copies.

Araki’s series of nude photographs of wives, Hitozuma Eros, originated in 1998, forming a more-or-less annual series that will reach it's 18th volume next month. These photobooks feature hundreds of wives who applied to be photographed by Araki over the past 15 years. While previous photos from the commercial series have all been in color, this book of exhibition photos features date-inscribed b/w photographs taken by Araki that have never been seen before. Other distinctions from the color photo series: these photos were taken with a 35mm camera, and, in a continuing artistic exploration of recent years, the b/w photographs have added color elements painted by Araki himself.

Condition: Very Good.
