Japanese photographer and visual artist Ken-ichi Murata (Japanese Princess) creates highly detailed photographic stagings which evocatively depict nude models as though they were characters in an erotic fairytale. His enchanting models blithely shed their clothing and reveal their gorgeous nude bodies. What Murata strives to illustrate with these young girls is the image of the "hime": an ancient Japanese word which can denote both a feeling of awe and a yearning for women. The conventional meaning of the word "hime" is "noble princess." His second photobook is a virtuosic and fantastic journey into erotic dream worlds. Lots of explicit spread-legged nudity, a fair amount of bondage and kink, a fair number of photos of women peeing. Hardcover, color.
