I have been making portraits using scanners for the last four years. Whether it be the marks of a bull whipping that look like the ‘delicate grass’ from a Monet painting, or big, tender bruises reminiscent of an abstract expressionist painting, I am interested in the landscape that BDSM play leaves behind on the body. The scanner captures detail down to the pore of everything that comes into contact with the glass, the act of scanning becomes a part of the play and a dance. I love to incorporate artistic documentation (whether with a scanner, a camera or a stenographer!) into my play.
These are the images that were taken at Miss Couple and my Kinky Tango and Artistic Mark Making Party.
