This was a meetup of the Alternative Photographer and Models Meetup Group.
This was a shoot in the north London studio Adrian Pini's Studio, near Brent Cross tube station.
Saturday, despite the amazing sun, I spent my day in a darkened studio with the undead....
Shibari, as it is named in the fetish community, is the Japanese art of rope bondage. In Japan, it would, more correctly, be called Kinbaku (緊縛) which means "tight binding,". The art has something with a long history, dating to the Edo period in the 17th Century. This was the first studio shoot I had ever done, and it was throwing myself into the deep end as it was a partially nude shoot (not all Shibari is done nude).
