The Hall of Justice

A cold midnight Shibari performance in front of the Palace of Reason in Padua – Italy


“… The yuki-onna appears as a beautiful tall woman, with long hair, an inhumanly pale and sometimes even transparent skin; when she appears at night in the snow, she merges with the landscape … sometimes she wears a white kimono, but in other legends she is naked, with only the face, the hair and the pubis in evidence on the snow … ”

“Butterfly Koi” backstage video

I often go for jogging along that road, like a lot of people do. And any time I thought :“I must make a shibari suspension with these wonderful graffiti on the background”. In Japanese culture, Koi carp has a strong connotation of mystical / religious, so it looked perfect to me for a “Japanese stile” art work.

Falling Angel in S.Marco square

My last challenge:a shibari suspension shooting in the middle of S.Marco square in Venice, full of webcams and 200 meters away from the police station! Many thanks to the beautiful and very professional model Kristell.I’m sorry for the bad quality, but we had to be less people than possible and so no cameraman but just the use of iPhone and a small compact camera by one of my two assistants…but I think it will be enough for those people who think that Photoshop is the only way to do create this kind of pictures! 🙂
