A friend of a friend recently gave me this picture.
The photograph is a cyanotype, a hand-coated photographic emulsion made with iron. Pictured are flesh corsets. Each of the two girls in the picture has multiple piercings in her flesh, and then the piercings are laced together with ribbon. The girl on the far right has her sides laced together, and the one just to her left the back of her legs.
By now we should all know that in darkness there is light.
