Atom emerged from almost a decade-long collaboration between Bazhenova-Yamasaki and Fleet Ilya. Both the artist and the label are committed to exploring the body and the power of eroticism. The book was a joint labour of love during the last two years of the global pandemic – the turbulent time to contemplate closeness, connection, desire and our relationship with our bodies and surrounding environments.
“The tactile element of the book itself is very satisfying, a textured cover, smooth satin pages, interspersed with pearlescent transparent pages. Skin and leather, bound flesh, flowing hair, freedom and restriction, natural eroticism, it’s an exploration of the senses which is key to the story we try to tell as creatives. An opportunity for a bit of a 'digital detox' for those wanting to explore intimate imagery in an intimate context,” Resha Sharma
