Arākī: The Exhibition@Aoyama - Tokyo

Nobuyoshi Araki is Japan's best-known photographer and contemporary artist. He is also known by the nickname Arākī. He has been called a monster, a pornographer and a genius - and the photographer quite agrees. Many of his photographs are erotic and some have been called pornographic. The Icelandic musician Björk is an admirer of Araki's work, and served as one of his models. At her request he photographed the cover and inner sleeve pages of her 1997 remix album, Telegram. Here's a few pics of Arākī's exhibition taken by my brother while visiting his girlfriend in Tokyo couple days ago.

Anyway, Tokyo is always been an interesting place to visit. It is a huge metropolis and still got loads to discover. Here's another random pictures of the city. Enjoy!
