In 2005, the brilliant and controversial Nobuyoshi Araki traveled to Europe for major exhibitions of his work. Already celebrated for his unflinching portrayals of Tokyo, the Japanese photographer embraced the opportunity to turn his lens onto London and Paris, two of Europe's most historic, dynamic, and culturally diverse capitals. Much more than a travelogue, Dirty PrettyThings is also an account of the emotional journey of the photographer and the two women he loves. Accompany Araki as he explores the people and streetscapes of these two great cities, exploring everything from food to bathrooms with insatiable curiosity. Informed by his legendary erotic Japanese photography, he strips his subjects bare, both literally and figuratively, in this searing investigation into the lives and bodies of the denizens of London and Paris. Not smut, but a fair amount of nudity. Mostly b&w, a little color.
