"a precious documentation of how leather can impact our consciousness and our bodies"
Atom,edited by Fleet Ilya co-founder Resha Sharma, comprises portraits of five heroines within their private spaces, still lives, immersive nature shots by Bazhenova-Yamasaki and poetic text by Beata Duvaker.
The book is an artistic exploration of intimate states of mind: tenderness and self-awareness, softness and power, openness and introspection, loneliness and pleasure. Leather pieces by Fleet Ilya are key to creating and capturing these states – harnesses, belts, collars and leather lingerie become a point of connection between the heroines, the photographer, the writer and the viewer. It is a precious documentation of how leather can impact our consciousness and our bodies.
“I loved seeing how the Fleet Ilya designs came into relationship with our bodies. Working with high quality crafted pieces is alway a pleasure,” Ekaterina Bazhenova-Yamasaki
