BIO and PROJECTS
B I O
David Lawrence has been a master of expressive portrait, social function and people photography for more than 25 years. During that time styles and fads have come and gone but David’s methods have remained true and effective. The tenets his work is based upon are not a matter of style but of substance.
David became interested in Shibari, the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage, in early 2003. With a keen artist’s eye, David recognized the inherent beauty of rope on skin. Shibari quickly became a passion, one that developed more intensely as he worked with and experienced the magic of rope. David’s talent and skill truly emerged as he delved deeper into the art of tying rope. His ties are meticulous, intricate, intense and beautiful. In fact, they are all true works of art.
David’s gift to us is his ability to expertly blend his two passions; rope and photography. As a result, his striking images communicate sensuality, eroticism, and the force of raw emotion. His use of lighting, angles, and sheer creativity is the key to his poignant imagery.
David’s three major projects to date are, INTENSITY, Men in Rope, reBOUND, Shibari Style Impressions, BOUND, Shibari Style Impressions.
INTENSITY, Men in Rope
is a compilation of 18 men tied and photographed by David Lawrence in his style of Japanese inspired rope bondage. The imagery of these men and this genre is raw, visceral and artistic.
reBOUND, Shibari Style Impressions
represents the compilation of imagery created during Phase II of my journey with Japanese style rope bondage. There are 368 pages with over 550 images including some behind the scene images captured by slave judy. What is special for me about this book are all the women who worked with me and gave their all to ensure stellar results.
BOUND, Shibari Style Impressions
This was my first book and I am honored to have Jurgen Boedt, Secret Magazine as my publisher. The book was a success and was released in June 2005 a mere 18 months from the start of Phase I of my journey with rope and photography.
Current and Ongoing Projects
David is working on completing his City Lights Series over the next year. This is a compilation of photographs taken around cities at night with women from partial to full nudity. What sets this apart from other night photography are the techniques he is using to create the photographs. You can read more about this on this website; City Lights Series
Women and men in rope will be a continuing theme. David will be looking to add more extreme ties with and without suspensions to create dynamic imagery. The images created from this series may be incorporated into a book at sometime in the future.
