Japanese photographer Daikichi Amano has a disturbing, erotic photo series that will most likely make you turn your head away in disgust.
Straddling the lines between artistic and fetish pornography, his creepy photos show his nude subjects bound and wrapped by the tentacles of dead octopuses.
According to Juxtapoz, the photos seem to explore the “gruesome connection between Japan’s metaphorical and literal consumption of both the female form and creatures of the sea”, and they also “blur the line between woman and animal”.
Besides octopuses, Amano also captures nude women covered in frogs, eels, and insects.
