Angels & Demons… Kinbaku-Shibari by Garth Knight

Garth Knight

Garth Knight incorporates the Japanese rope bondage known as Kinbaku or Shibari into gorgeous living installations and photography. His work captures the breathtaking beauty of bondage, and also takes it into realms beyond humanity. Many of his series turn his subjects into elements of nature, transforming them into insects and arachnids, trees and even the human heart and circulatory system. There’s a juxtaposition of isolation and interconnectivity that makes these images very complex to contemplate. Others of his series mimic religious iconography – these images fascinate me, as they demonstrate the physical and sexual constraints that make the foundation of so many religions in such an erotic way, which to me reflects on how obsessed religious tenets are with the morality of human sexuality. Knight’s work is available in book or print form on his website, and you can follow him on facebook. Below I’ve compiled some of my favorites in a stunning gallery of bondage and submission…
