The Dark Arts (@thedarkarts)
The Dark Arts is a Washington State based rope bondage rigger and photographer. They got into the art of shibari years ago after being hired to shoot some people at a local kink club, began experimenting with the artform and soon was creating bondage imagery not seen very much from other people working in the bondage scene. The Dark Arts is constantly pushing the envelope of visual style, trying to incorporate bold colors and lighting and seeking diverse models that one generally doesn't see in shibari photography. They strive to show all genders and bodies in rope, bucking the tradition of only putting petite white and Asian women in rope.
