"There are a lot of people who think that if there is a date on a photo, it can't be called a work, but I just like date very much. It has an obvious concept of time. Generally speaking, many people pay more attention to the factors of space or composition in photography.
The essence of photography.
"There are a lot of people who think that if there is a date on a photo, it can't be called a work, but I just like date very much. It has an obvious concept of time.
Generally speaking, many people pay more attention to the factors of space or composition in photography.
But in my opinion, the concept of time is more important.
With the opening of the shutter, time is solidified, and the record as the 'here and now' is unrepeatable and becomes forever. "
"The use of flash can reveal a relationship, revealing the relationship of trust between the photographer and the subject.
At the same time, it will also constitute a distance between myself and my model.
Sometimes it can be shocking to use a flash to reveal a person and capture a moment.
Apart from showing kindness, the camera should show more things, such as a little guilt, betrayal, and violence, otherwise, our photography will look a little boring.
What is revealed can be the highlight of photography. "
"every camera has its philosophy. Obedience to the camera and the film is the ultimate secret of photography."
Araki is a photographer who understands the essence of photography.
He believes that photography is just a means to "copy" reality and spread it.
Mass production, mass dissemination, and mass consumption are the most in line with the visual way of photography as a consumer society.

Photos have survival value only in the process of continuous production and consumption.
Therefore, he knows that only by publishing in large quantities can women be passed on to society as a kind of material of desired consumption.
Therefore, Araki Jingwei's photos do not deliberately pursue the so-called artistry. The perspective of his photos is not strange, and the composition does not win with subtlety. His photos often look simple on the surface, and they often feel like this even after being seen by ordinary people.
However, once these photos have been cleverly edited by Araki, they show their charm.
He can arrange two photos in different contexts together, and as a result, the two inconspicuous and unrelated photos suddenly glow with their brilliance due to the relationship of competition but mutual solidarity.
In a sense, photos are just words for him. He uses a large number of photos to materialize his point of view and uses a large number of photos to organize his narrative.
The basic point of his photography lies not in the slow "appreciation" of traditional works of art, but in being flipped quickly like a cartoon, and abandoned at the same time as fast flipping, which ensures the possibility of continuous production of images.
Therefore, not taking "art" as the goal is the fundamental decision made by Araki.
This is a decision made by a photographer who fully understands the nature of modern consumer society.
For Araki Jingwei, art is never his problem.
He tried his best to avoid the impression of "art" in his photography and tried to lower the artistic threshold of his photography.
In his case, there is no question of whether photography is art or not, but it has become a question of whether photography wants art or not.
However, it is strange that when he is not interested in art, he is recognized as an art master by the art world and has become a hot figure in today's art world.
Perhaps this is a miracle that only photography can have.
