Quinn, 2018

I tie up naked girls, photograph them using a fifty-year-old Leica, make prints in the darkroom, and call it art. 

There is no better way to reveal a young woman’s beauty than through rope, discipline, and humiliation. If that’s hard to accept morally or politically, I can’t help you. Art has to be about beauty.
Rope is magic. Some girls, when they’re tied up, get so relaxed that they could fall asleep. ‘It’s like therapy!’ one said. Some girls get turned on. Some discover their need for discipline and punishment. And others are just very happy the whole time and keep smiling for an hour afterwards. They all come back for more.

I use a Leica M4 for film photography, and a Leica X Vario, mainly, for digital. All images on this website were shot with digital cameras. My analog photos are hand-printed in an edition of one and never scanned.
