In August 2009 Lady Gaga celebrated the Haus’s (Haus of Gaga) collaboration with legendary Japanese photographer Araki.
In her own words she says, “I was bound by Araki’s personal bondage artist, by several ropes and Japanese knots … Araki photographed me, using a series of several cameras. He did not photograph my image; he photographed my soul. We spent the night with Araki and his friends at a members’ only bar he’s owned for more than 20 years, where he displays his work. Here, he painted me and took Polaroids through the night. I was honored to be the first American woman he’s photographed, and only the second pop artist, in the company of Björk. He signed the Polaroids ‘Tokyo Love,’ and the Haus got tattoos of his marking in celebration.”
