SKATEROOM

Araki Orchid

Despite the amount of controversy surrounding Araki’s career, sexually explicit images only represent a portion of the artist’s work. Rather than acting as a tool separate from himself, Araki merges with the camera in order to document the mundanities of everyday life. From skies and blooming flowers to crowded streets and sex clubs, the diversity of images caught by Araki’s lens document Tokyo’s duality in its intense bursts of energy versus its inhuman emptiness.
