Nobuyoshi Araki is undisputedly one of the most radical and influential photographers of our times. In his oeuvre he has been exceptionally productive and innovative and is regarded as one of the most important figures in current art sphere far beyond the area of photography.
In the last 40 years Araki has published around 350 photo books. In his native country has long been a media star. His enormous fame in Japan at the beginning of the 1990’s was accompanied with increasing international interest. In the last ten years Araki’s work has been presented in a number of exhibitions in Europe. The show in WestLicht has been specially conceived for the space and is the artist’s third large solo show in Austria since the solo shows in Forum Stadtpark Graz in 1992 and the Vienna Secession show in 1997.
