This event will be taking place online.
Join Instagram sensations, The London Vagabond, and Special Collections Manager and curator of the UK Leather and Fetish Archive, Stef Dickers, for an in-conversation and exploration of their archive.
There will also be an introduction to shibari (Japanese rope bondage) from Anatomie Studio, including a demonstration of basic techniques. If you'd like to follow these demonstrations, please bring two pieces of rope/ties.
We'll then be delving further into the UK Leather and Fetish Archive with Stef sharing stories from the collection.
Meet the Speakers
The London Vagabond
The London Vagabond are London based lovers and fetishists. They have been making work collaboratively for around four years under the alias "The London Vagabond".
The work has a focus on fetish, eroticism, and the documentation of the marginalised. The work created together comes from two separate perspectives: a submissive male point of view which is far removed from the typical, often misogynistic male gaze, and the female perspective is from a dominant female and an advocator of female empowerment.
They both want to depict the individual/s in the images honestly, and for the work to be a true and powerful representation of the subject/s in the frame.
