The Art of Japanese Shibari
Shibari (Japanese for “bondage”) or Kinbaku (the name of the activity itself) is originally the Japanese art of bondage. These fascinating bondage techniques combine both sex and art. Consensual bondage is very visually stimulating and can be breathtaking, not only for the viewer. It is based on a close relationship between the binder and the bound—A relationship built on intimacy and complete trust. With such an intimate shoot, what role does the photographer play?
