New York captures the quiet of Erwitt's native city in this unusually quiet city street.

This major publication provides the most comprehensive overview yet of Araki's prolific 40-year career. Araki's key series of works are included alongside many rare and previously unpublished photographs. Featuring an interview and essays by writers from Japan and Europe, this book examines Araki from a broad range of perspectives and gives a cultural context to his work. Also included are a large selection of Araki's writings, translated into English for the first time, as well as complete illustrated and annotated bibliography of his own books. Reflecting Araki's principle of 'I-photography', the book is divided into three sections that follow the main recurring themes in his work: Self, Life and Death.

Born in 1940, Nobuyoshi Araki is arguably Japan's greatest living photographer, and certainly its most controversial. His inexhaustible creative energy is attested to by the more than 300 books he has published in the last four decades, while his work, which often challenges social taboos surrounding sex and death, has drawn critical attention both at home and abroad.
