Daido Moriyama's fourth monograph is a collection of numerous full-page photographs (including six in color) of nude Japanese women in various settings but mainly in some form of rope bondage.
This work is the only nude photo collection of the renown Japanese photographer. Rumor says that it was produced due to the high cost of traveling to New York.
