ASIA BONDAGE is a stunning collection of photos of gorgeous Asian women, elegantly and often intricately bound. On the one hand a stunning, sensual, highly stylised collection, yet also an open, explicitly sexual selection of erotic nudes, these photographs subvert the traditional concepts of submissive and dominant, with each woman becoming an active participant in the photograph, a controlling force in the imagery, and an enticing and erotically exciting challenge to the viewer.

There is a message here. And Speliotis conveys it with the exquisite photography that he has become renown for. Commanding, brooding, enthralling, Asia Bondage has both the material and attitude to appeal to a wide range of interests. The photography is magnificent.
If you're a fan of bondage, this book could come as a huge disappointment, especially as its cover promises so much. The quality of the photography is high (if occasionally 'air-brushed'), but in its exploration of the subject of bondage it leaves a lot to be desired. Surely a large part of the point of bondage is restraint, and you can't restrain someone by merely draping a few bits of rope over them! The tension (both physical and in the mind of the viewer) is almost totally absent. So is this an artistic photographic study or an anodyne attempt to cash-in on a 'racy' subject? Let's just say this reviewer feels a more appropriate title would be 'Asia - women and string'
I also appreciate the fact that this is a personal vision and exploration between Speliotis and his models, Asian Women and the expert use of black & white photography.

Also, you can tell that the photograph on the cover was airbrushed. (Among other things, a mole has been removed from the model's back.) That makes me wonder what else in this collection has been "improved." And frankly, it makes me wonder what the artist thought he was trying to accomplish with this project.
