I really love this headshot of Atsuko Kudo (AKO) the Japanese fetish dress designer. Not only is she seriously beautiful but her latex costumes are works of art without the slightest trace of sleaze, which is not commonplace in the twilight world of fetishism. This headshot is one of a series of headshots, but I particularly like this one. Iím fortunate to have a good relationship with mademoiselle Kudo, who poses for me frequently, or whenever she has a new set of costume. I particularly enjoyed photographing her latex knickers set, which I later painted. Mind you, I had to have a strong cup of tea after the session, as elderly gentlemen like myself mustnít get too excited looking at pulchritudinous objets díart.
Incidentally, I Ďliftedí the head off a full-length shot of Atsuko wearing a black rubber dress, which is also featured in this limited edition series.
