Photographer of the Week: Chira Tane

Today’s photographer, Chira Tane, is based in Germany. The shoot we’re looking at was done in 2013 as a promo for the band DK Denz, fronted by Chira’s good friend Dennis Korn, who also appears in the pictures. The girl is Annette Rödde. Here she is looking like the girl next door.

She looks rather different in Chira’s photos, which are a grim set, shot in a gloomy cellar and exploring themes of dominance and submission.

Perhaps inevitably, that means one of the things Dennis did to Annette that day was chain her to a pillar:

It was a slightly more promising shot that made it to the cover of the band’s CD:

It only took a tug on that chain, and Annette wound up in a much more pleasing predicament:

A few of the non-spanking photographs from the shoot were used in videos for the band’s sadistic songs Junges Mädchen (Young Girl) and Ketten aus Stahl (Chains of Steel), which you can watch here and here… though personally, I wouldn’t bother!
