This is a lifework of Araki Nobuyoshi, known as 「人妻エロス(Married Women Eros)」, working with magazine-『週刊大衆』(Futabasha-双葉社)as a series project started in 1998. Hundreds of married women have applied to the magazine- 『週刊大衆』 to have Araki taking pictures of their true/naked side as a married women. The 700 photos would be deployed in a grid on the wall, all of them are taken with a 35mm camera. Unlike the 「人妻エロス(Married Women Eros)」photo series, the intimate relationship between photographer Araki and the married women as the subject of being photohraphed is more intensely projected to the work. In addition, each photo has been decorated by the hands of Araki's own color marker of seven colors, and it is with photographs of unprecedented " married woman ". In addition , there would be a display of 20 new works taken by Araki with medium format camera showcasing as a part of the exibition.


The work of Araki explains " married women themselves as art ". Within the action photographing " take / be taken ", Araki's artistic intention is to draw out the enchantment/charm from the married women that their husbands have never seen, as well as inviting those who see to the world of the married women. It really sets up a question for all to wonder what is means to live as a women.
