Quinn untied, 2018

I tie up girls, often teach them some manners, take a few pictures, and call this art. 

Nothing is more beautiful than a beautiful young woman, and there is no better way to reveal a young woman’s beauty than through rope and discipline. If that’s hard to accept morally or politically, I can’t help you. Art has to be about beauty. 

Rope is magic. Discipline is freedom. Some girls, when they’re tied up, get so relaxed that they could fall asleep. It’s like therapy! one said. Many get turned on when they are bound, told how to behave, or spanked. Others are just very happy the whole time and keep smiling like crazy for an hour afterwards. Somehow they all come back for more. 

I’m not a shibari innovator or a dungeon master wearing a leather mask. What I do is old-fashioned, simple and effective, just what is needed for the girls to surrender and become like flowers to my eyes. Then I pick the flowers, and if you like, you can see some of them on this website. You’re welcome.

I use a Leica M4 loaded with Kodak Tri-X for analog photography, and a Leica X Vario, mainly, for digital. All images on this website were shot digitally. My analog photos are hand-printed in an edition of one and never scanned, so you won’t see those here. My digital workflow nowadays is 97 percent darktable
