The Japanese photographer Ken-ichi Murata is a sensational new discovery. The pretty Japanese girls in his hand-coloured black-and-white photographs transport us into the erotic fantasy worlds of a Japanese artist who is inspired by thousand-year-old traditions and sexual rites. Murata enchants us with nymph-like princesses and half-nude girls in kimonos. Here are stimulating role play and exotic charm in their purest form. This unique book deserves a special place in every collection of erotic photography!

This is a large (31.5x24cm), hardcover book and consists of 84 pages with 77 full-page photographs. Text is written in English, French, and German.
It's a tantalizing insight to the realm of the senses.
We are invited into the land of fables and fairytales - often dark and gothic - where the beautiful and grotesque sometimes dwell.
It's a study executed in hand-colored, mono-chromed prints of women discovering their sexuality; whist the author explores his primitive fears and primal passions; the beginning of life, emotional security and the fear of death.
See Nymphs and Nubiles - Sirens seducing themselves, or having been seduced by demons - stiring yearnings of innocence lost and maybe a desire for future encounters.
Inspired, perhaps by the graphic detail and symbolism of Shunga artists of another time and place - the works are unsettlingly evocative - a contemporary take on the traditional work of pastmasters - Hokusai, Issho and Utamaro.
The stories unfold in a series of images - a tantalizing view of another world.
Ken-ichi Murata is the creator and photographer with color added by his muse Yumiko Yamasaki - he is alive and kicking today - and you can enjoy a visit his website.
He seems to capture in a moment - the sensitivity and psychological nuances of his subject - intoxicating images that suggest the elusive and enchanting nature of desire.
Whatever - theirs is the enduring story of the beauty and the beast.
