About The Work
Ces images sobres et fluides du corps humain en mouvement explorent le rapport paradoxal entre beauté formelle et punition corporelle. Rappelant des roses pas tout à fait écloses, ces corps qui vrillent sont une interprétation visuelle de la pratique du bondage japonais – le kinbaku.
These sober and fluid images of the human body in movement explore the paradoxical relation between formal beauty and bodily punishment. Recalling a rose that is not quite open, the spinning bodies are a visual interpretation of Japanese Kinbaku bondage.

WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?
All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?
NO! Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.
