PERFECT bathroom book!
fetish images for private viewing"
is a fetish look into the most private room in the home, the bathroom.
beautiful models..... 74 striking B&W images all captured by
the fine art fetish photographer Lochai. Internationally known for
his kinbaku bondage images, this is his first published view of
his "other" fetish images.
what they are saying!
S. Roche, editor eros-zine
of Lochai, the rigger and bondage photographer joins the photo book
showcase with a surprising and disarming document, Occupied. If
you're familiar with Lochai, it may surprise you to learn that Occupied
is not a showcase of the photographer's amazing and intriguing bondage
images, but a fetish exploration of that most private room in all
homes -- that's right, the bathroom. Sound like an improbable topic
for a fetish book?
Maybe, maybe not. As an occasional fetish photographer, I can vividly
imagine how the idea for this book took shape: we photographers
spend a hell of a lot of time hanging out in hotel rooms, residences,
lofts, studios and other locations while our models primp and preen
and get themselves as exquisitely perfect as a fetish model is expected
to be. This book focuses partly on that process -- but with a subtlety
that conjures a strangely enlightening sensibility. Most if not
all of the images stand brilliantly on their own merits, but as
part of this inspired assemblage, they create a lush sense of the
playfulness and energy that informs the world of fetish photography.
It's a wonderful and engaging collection of photographs, as sexy
as it is illuminating.
talent, a must-have book by Victoria E
"Lochai is a wonderful man to shoot with. It was a honor to
work with him & Janice, a chance that I would do again in a
heartbeat. (In case anyone is curious, I'm the girl in the shower,
about to lick the vibrating duck ... yup, that's me, woohoo!)"
look at fetish by John Andrews
"What a different look at fetish! The images are beautiful,
energetic & fun all at the same time. I will never enter my
bathroom without seeing it in a "different light" Lochai
has an eye for beauty in a genre that is thought to be more "sex"
than fine art. Well this book proves that fetish fits in the fine
art section of the book store! This book is a MUST PURCHASE
book for yourself as well as for a good friend!"
came to this realization last fall at the Austin Rope Symposium.
I was sitting in the audience as he presented a slideshow of his
new work, image after image in black and white showing the kind
of casual elegant composition that, like good makeup, you don't
really notice because it simply looks right. He was bantering with
the audience as they gave their reactions to the images, and the
room was filled with laughter mixed with appreciative gasps as the
next image would come up."
