By definition, the oxymoronic expression of magical realism “tells its stories from the perspective of people who live in our world and experience a different reality from the one we call objective”. This, along with the nice wordplay of voyeurography are the signs that predict the idea of the following pictorial.
For this new photoshoot, the kinky-visioned, long-term contributor photographer of our webzine Suzana Plesca chose to take a detour from the intimacy of budoir (see here and here) and to explore the sensuality even further, in the “outworld”.
The photographer reckoned (like others before) that one of the most suitable environments to depict the art of shibari (the ancient Japanese art of rope bondage) is the forest; a more ritualistic form of coming back to the origins of kink, if you will.
“[For this photoshoot] we went out in the forest and tried out shibari, nudity and nature”, Suzana explains in few words, practically describing the triquetra of the pictorial.
The magical realism kicks in only after you absorb the pictures with your eyeballs and you come to the conclusion that the model loses her inhibitions (and clothes) once she discovers the secure, protective, almost magical atmosphere of the woods. Which means that if you referred to it as to an irrational frenzy, you wouldn’t be very wrong. Food for thought!
