STRICTLY BONDAGE

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Every once in a while, a set of photos will come across my desk that stops me, dead.
“Who shot this?”
“Some guy named Victor Lightworship.”
“Fuck, this guy is one twisted bastard, but these photos are gorgeous.”
Victor’s devious mind sprang from god knows what. He grew up in the Deep South of the US where deviance is a high art form, so is an appreciation for feminine beauty.
These characteristics are imbued in his photography. Pleading-eyed, vulnerable females dangle from languid branches; they are surrounded by orchid gardens, locked up behind rustic woodpiles or confined in rooms of tasteful, traditional furnishings. His lone male figure is brutish, controlling and of one single thought, sexual sadism. A non-expressive man entitled to maul and molest at will. It is all this drama that draws you in, like a good play, sweet, tragic, sexual, irresistible. You want to be a part of it, to live it.

Lightworship’s photography is extremely calculated and carefully executed. Photos like his don’t just happen. Of course he is a professional photographer, learned and practiced in the craft. He knows the image he is after and has a stunning eye for detail. Every piece of clothing, which is a critical part of his storytelling, to the intricate Shibari bondage, is pondered, practiced and planned before he steps in front of the camera. Lightworship sought out a rope master in order to learn to tie the Kinbaku ties himself. To say that Lightworship is a driven perfectionist would be an understatement.

It is rare to get the magic combination of absolute skill and deviance in a photographer. He is not afraid to photograph and show everything, deeply disturbing or not, that is going on in his grey matter. In fact, luckily for us, he possesses an urgent enthusiasm where it seems that he will burst until he gets these dark images out. A true artist that must create in order to live.

That is what we get with Lightworship.
This book should be on every collector’s list of fine art photography as well as bondage photography. An original and refreshing tome, you are not likely to see another like it.
