Shibari News

Shibari is so beautiful and artistic that it has been studied by various photographers—and Agustin Tentesion knows it. In Spain, there are several photographers that are affectionate to this art, such as Tentesion himself. He is one of the most famous shibari photographers worldwide. Originally from Barcelona, he has been portraying fetichism and BDSM scenes for years. His work includes varied styles and thousands of locations. However, he has opted for an almost minimalist technique, restricting elements in order to focus attention on the essentials.

Agustin Tentesion: His Works

Agustin Tentesion has collaborated in many expositions. For example, his photographs have been the cover of different books. He has done many fetich calendars which had great repercussion among the press; even Playboy has an article about his work. Moreover, Tentesion is the author of  Miradas, Shibari & Bondage, and Tatooatados.

Shibari & Bondage

In this regard, Shibari & Bondage was the first book on this field, published in Spain. It was a very special publication because it was not easy to find publishers who dared to address such a rugged subject for the first time. Its 150 pages include a photographic compilation of his best bondage work. In it, Tentesion gives priority to the force and plasticity of the images over the actual technique of shibari. Thus, it is an art book with a visual delight for all the rope lovers.

Tattooatados

Tattooatados is also a book about rope bondage. In it, we can enjoy really impressive images on ink, leather, and strings. Black Bible Books produced a limited edition of 666 numbered copies. In total, 212 tattooed models and 15 riggers versed in the discipline of shibari collaborated.

Tentesion started The Shibari Experience, a book of photographs of women and men who undergo a shibari session for the first time. He has been collaborating in The Shibari Experience, The Shibari Experience 2, and working on The Shibari Experience 3.
