John Gillan's thirty year photographic career has included extensive travel throughout the United States, Caribbean Islands and Europe. Gillan's fine art images have been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally and are part of many private collections.
Secret Space was Gillan's first erotic / fetish documentation done with a "pinhole" camera and people. The combination was challenging, impressive and alluring. The second book is well underway utilizing digital technology. This combined with Gillan's sense of sensual lighting brings a new dimension to his work.
When not creating images for books and photographic art exhibitions, Gillan enjoys an exciting career in advertising photography.
As an observer of the lifestyle, I am motivated by the exchange of energy between the players and the visual stimulus they evoke. As a photographer, I am compelled to capture this energy and raw communication.
Secret Space was my first glimpse into the lifestyle. My curiosity and desire to learn more took me to such venues as Europerve, Rubber Ball and many private events around the world.
The collaboration, Digital Kinbaku, has allowed me to experience and present another view into the lifestyle and particularly......bondage.
This photographic presentation of my journey is one way of saying thank you to those who enjoy the lifestyle and to all who have participated and allowed me to capture their private moments and fantasies.
