Last night I went, with Jim O’connell, to the opening of Canadian photographer Nathalie Daoust’s ‘Hide and Sex’ exhibition at the vanilla gallery in Ginza.
I was invited by Yuri, my pole dancer friend from the show I shot recently, who features as one of Nathalies models.
Daoust’s exhibition is an exploration of female S&M workers in Tokyo. There are some 40 pictures in colour and black and white.
It was the first time I have come across her work, but I found it to be extremely interesting and beautifully photographed.
Nathalie was also very friendly and welcoming, which apart from the great photography is the main reason I’m posting about it here.
If you find yourself in Ginza from now until the 12th September, its well worth a visit.
