Foam Magazine #40 After Araki / Heaven and Hell

foammagazine-araki-16

In my opinion, the most beautiful photography publication on the planet right now is Foam Magazine (and has been for awhile). There is no one touching them, not even close. This gorgeous issue “After Araki / Heaven and Hell” features contemporary Japanese photographers whose work has been directly influenced by Nobuyoshi Araki.

I took a whole bunch of photos of the issue, and rather than try to describe how amazing it looks I’ll just let you peek inside and make up your own mind. As far as magazines go, it ain’t cheap, but it’s less than you’d spend on any art book.

Thank you to the crew at Foam, the issues you send over are always the highlight of my week. Take a look inside “After Araki / Heaven and Hell” below.
