ATOM & POSTER

  • Printed in the edition of 200, Atom is an exploration of desire, beauty, loneliness and introspection. It is also a reflection of our shifting understanding of the body and spaces we’ve inhabited in the last two turbulent years, and a project firmly rooted in the transformative power of the female gaze.


    Atom captures a range of leather pieces by Fleet Ilya as tools of self-discovery, intimate connection, and collaborative creativity. The book, 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 a result of almost a decade-long collaboration between Bazhenova-Yamasaki and Fleet Ilya. It combines the plurality of female perspectives and voices from the collaborators and the heroines depicted in its pages – a testament to that underrepresented point of view when it comes to photography, sexuality, and leatherwork.


    Atom is a book of erotic photography that reinvents erotic photography, strips it to viscerally honest corporeality, deep-rooted intimacy, and irresistible beauty of the small details, be it a flower or a leather strap. It offers a sensory journey through photography and writing – alongside the pleasure of an exquisite object to hold or have at home.
