Photographer: Nobuyoshi Araki
Araki is the featured photographer in the Tokyo Camera Style feature of the May 2014 issue of Nippon Camera.
In addition to my portrait of him there’s a several page feature of some of his recent work and a great little interview about his thoughts on going blind in his right eye, support for amateur photographers, and his upcoming massive exhibition in Toyota city next month. This issue is in bookstores now.Fact: Araki filled in the right lens of his glasses with a black marker himself.

The host of my Leica virus, a Leica M6 with the Noctilux-M 1:1/50. This set, along with a 90mm Summicron, a 28mm Elmarit and Winder-M, was a present in the late 80s from my father, after he decided to concentrate on the Leica R system.

The latest effects of that virus, a Leica M Monochrom with the actual Noctilux-M 1:0.95/50 Asph.
