Kinoko Hajime 花札緊縛美人―写真集 (2017)

Pine (January), Plum (February). Cherry Blossoms (March)… in Kinokos new photo-book, there is a deep resonance with older traditions of Japanese art. Twelve months, twelve plants, twelve models – tied and photographed by Kinoko, sometimes complemented with illustrations by the manga-artist Shintarou Kago. I love some of the details, as for example the tenugui wrapped around the branches of the tree, not to hurt it when using it for suspension…

Rope and photo: Kinoko Hajime

PS Among the many references to art-books structured by the twelve months, this is one perhaps worth mentioning: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2013/11/22/itoh-seiu-twelve-months-of-punishments/
