While I'm slaving away here trying to get this interview I recently conducted ready for publication, I thought I'd post these photos I received from Hajime Kinoko
which were taken at his rope event in Shibuya a few weeks back. These photos were taken by another photographer and present a little different perspective from the ones I posted here earlier.
Also, there are three new photos at the end giving a taste of the hojojutsu demonstration.
In addition, the recorded interview with Kinoko was given the once-over by the multi-talented rida
and she has provided us with some more usable quotes which I've superimposed over the photos.
Anyway, the next report is an interview I recently conducted with superstar bondage photographer, Sugiura Norio, and I'll have that up next week sometime. There is a lot of historical information in this piece (Sugiura goes back to the early 70s) and, as a result, I've had to do a lot more research than is usually the case and there is some other work going on behind the scenes as well.
Beautiful post and photos KJ. Thank you! I can definitely relate to Kinoko-san's sentiment about the rope being "an extension of my own senses."
I thought you would like some of these quotes
Great! Thanks for it KabukiJoe!
Nice Pic´s I like Kinokos Work!
Thanks for reading.
Very sweet posting, nice pictures, and what I like the most is the 'view on the mind' of Hajime Kinoko. It is always nice to learn how great kinakushi (and I hope I use this term in the right way) look at the art they exert!
Please, please, would it be possible to get access to the pic or the words on the pic that was taken down, with the words about the chopsticks and it being a part of his own senses? I would love to get a hold of that quote, at least, because it is so much how I feel myself.
All the best
No pics have been taken down. It's still there, fourth from the last. Are you not able to see it?
Ah, there is just a icon for a broken pic there. Am I the only one who can't see it?
Well, son of a gun. I'm on a Mac and it comes up fine in Firefox and Safari but I only periodically check things on a PC in I.E.
I think I recognize the name. Are you over at Forum Bondage as well? I can upload the pic over there for you (hopefully the mods won't mind :-). There's another way short of emailing it to you. Let me know if you're on F.B.
