Taking inspiration from the subject of Shibari, an ancient technique, meaning ‘to tie’, the act of Shibari experiments with the ideas of restraint and liberation of the physical body, including blood flow, adrenaline, fear, sensuality, and a variety of emotions for both the rigger and model. Through this it is important to recognise the model also feeling a sense of female empowerment though such an experience. Using digital photography, I attempt to capture these moments, and express the relationship to a broader spiritual and philosophical curiosity.
