A video take you behind the scenes of a photo-shoot that the Japanese master photographer Nobuyoshi Araki shot for Japanese fashion magazine The Reality Show.
Kensui Arao directed this behind the scenes video of the Araki photoshoot titled Behind the Scenes 2. The photo shoot features a strong roster of appearances that include model Jessica Michibata, model and actress Kiko Mizuhara and several others. The music is by Japanese band The Plasticzooms, who are also in the photo-shoot. “It was like a zoo, a Tokyo fashion zoo,” says editor-in-chief Tiffany Godoy, who founded The Reality Show in 2010 with art director Tomoyuki Yonezu. The two conceived of the title as a way to showcase Japanese style with a global perspective: inviting a select mix of models, actors, artists and street-fashonistas to meld their own wardrobes with the latest collections from Western designers, including Lanvin, Balenciaga and Tom Ford.
Nobuyoshi Araki is best known for his provocative photographs incorporating kinbaku (the art of Japanese rope tying), Araki has published over 500 books of his artwork and exhibited around the world at such institutions as The Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo and London’s Hayward Gallery.
