Arakitronics | A cinematic fantasy.
Arakitronics by Nobuyoshi Araki (荒木 経惟), first published 1994, is a bold portfolio of 382 pages depicting a single nude Japanese girl in a variety of poses, sometimes dressed in a traditional Kimono, often touching BDSM and bondage scenarios.
Araki is best known for his black-and-white photographs and polaroids of Japanese woman in Kinbaku (Shibari) rope bondage settings. The book can be seen as a sidestep into a much more staged color photography. The contrasting red, blue and green lights create a dark, almost surreal mood of David Lynchian quality. A cinematic fantasy created in a most minimal set-up.
