Photo-Planete, 1994 First edition Softcover, 44 pages, 230 x 300 mm Condition: Near Fine
Araki's Obscenities, actually a special issue of the magazine Déjà-Vu, is an intriguing departure for the master of fetishist photography. Instead of presenting his trademark explicit nudes, Araki had chosen to alter the negatives, scratched and drawn on, covering its obscene elements. The images become oddly more arousing, as they are seen through the marks of his hand, as well as the desire of his eye. The result is Araki's statement on the idea of “obscenity”.
