Lot description
"Flower" (c. 1990) is a stunning color photograph of a super-close detail of a lush flower in bloom comes by Nobuyoshi Araki. This work is part of his iconic series "Sensual Flowers." Dimensions of photograph: 19 x 23 inches. Framed to larger dimensions. Excellent condition. Araki's approach to photographing flowers is similar to that of his female subjects: his foremost goal is to let emotion rather than thought inform the content of the work. This leads him to take photos that expose everything to the viewer, resulting in two seemingly diverse forms of subject matter are intertwined by this explicit attempt to generate a pictorial rawness and nakedness.
