London Bound Cover

Bondage Week Day 1
I'm quite well known for my shibari and rope bondage in both the fetish world and photography world so I thought I'd do a 'bondage week' for the rest of this week featuring some photos from my recent book 'London Bound' which can be seen at
www.TwistedArts.co.uk/londonbound

This is two photos showing the front and back covers.
On the right is Roxy in a 'karada' (rope thing) with a 'corset binding' on her wrists, I hand-tinted the ropes and added a border-effect in paint shop pro. This was shot in her living room with a single flash head bounced off a wall to the left.

On the left is Josie, my back-cover-girl, in a full length Karada with some extra bits, photo was inverted to negative in photoshop. This was shot in her bedroom with a flash just to the right of the camera.

Although bondage isn't my thing, these are well taken shots. The processing is very good.
Mark Varley: Bondage is something loved by a few and avoided by the many, I hope to show some beauty from that which is regarded as dark. Thank you Gail.
I am not in favor of bondage, but certainly within the erotic game it can have a certain incentive. Your photographies are done with much refinement and that makes attractive. The cover of this book seduces by itself! Good work, Mark!
Mark Varley: I thank you José for looking beyond your dislike of bondage and seeing my photography for what it is, I hope my photos over the next few days please your eye also.

Bondage is good! The ropework is beautiful in this shot. It made me thing of Celtic art and I have never before tied the two together! I'll look out for your book at Skintwo expo this week.
Mark Varley: I used to do alot of ropework when I was living in cornwall and many there saw similarities with celtic art, interesting. Sadly you won't see my book at skintwo expo as it's still only available online. If you are often in London I would happily show you a copy I have though smile
