A collection of works by Nobuyoshi Araki, one of Japan's leading post-war photographers. Not only so-called “records” such as “realism”, “journalism” and “documentary”, but also new photographs such as “visual photography” and “compora photography” were born in Japan after the 1960s. It was also the beginning of photography by private lines, and the one with the strongest assertion was said to be "private photography." In other words, something that "imprints me" through the object. The main characters were Masahisa Fukase and Nobuyoshi Araki. From the 90s onwards, the expression "Private diary" was frequently used, and several works with the same title were published. This book is composed of unpublished works at the time, mainly nude by Araki's private line. In particular, there are many items with motifs such as "bondage" and "married woman". Limited to 1000 copies.
