The Dark Arts’ LIGHT / SHADOW / COLOR and power in restraint

by Jiz Lee on / Art, BDSM, Books, Erotica & Anthologies

Restraint, or rather, the act of being restrained, can reveal power. Of all the elements of BDSM, at this moment in my life I’m finding inspiration in the art of restraint. It is within the act of locating and testing barriers, of pulling and fighting against tension that I discover what’s possible. It’s a feeling of physical and emotional strength that is the opposite of submitting or giving in, or of being dead weight. It’s an active push against limitations that creates a counterbalance, defies gravity, and transforms into dance.

This element is what I explored recently when I had the pleasure of shooting bondage photos with The Dark Arts. We produced some stunning photographs, and I’m very proud to see them included in a beautiful and unique new bondage photography book, LIGHT/SHADOW/COLOR.

If you follow my Instagram you’ve seen a few “SFW” versions, but here’s a quick taste without the ridiculous, needless censorship. (Can you tell I abhor censorship of the body and believe it does more harm than good? But I digress…)

LIGHT/SHADOW/COLOR is available for pre-sale through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The book is beautiful and at $45 well worth the price of a full color 300 page photography book. There are other perks available, such as a framed print of the image I’ll share below. I’ve never felt so powerful and super-hero like than in this pose! If you do order this print along with the book, The Dark Arts will see that you’re added to my Holiday Card mailing list as well.

Pre-order a copy for yourself and support the creation of a beautiful and unique (and a hell of a lot more diverse) addition to bondage photography genre, one I’m honored to be a part of. Also, much love and shout out to Nenetl Avril, whom was among the first models I saw pose for The Dark Arts, and a big part of why I wanted to pose too.

JIZ LEE X DAVE NAZ X EMS #62

by Jiz Lee on / Uncategorized

Sneak peek from my recent quickie to Los Angeles, where I got to play with how I can insert myself within classic fetish imagery of leather, chaps, rope, and androgyny. And a few other things not included here, due to a prohibition on Vimeo and Instagram. (I’m calling sexual censorship “prohibition” — it’s got an antiquated ring to it, that I hope will one day be true. #FreeTheNippple)

Look forward to the full, uncensored spread by photographer Dave Naz in TABOO Magazine. Until then, here is a behind the scenes video and photographs, captured by EMS, (JIZ LEE X NAZ X EMS #62). Rigging by Damon Pierce. At 2:00, there’s a pretty good view of what I look like from behind. 😉
