Arthur Archie Carron Photography – Geisha 芸者
Geisha 芸者 are traditional female Japanese performing artists and entertainers. The Geisha’s talents include performing many Japanese arts such as classical music and dance.
Apprentice geisha are called Maiko and the traditional image of the white make-up and elaborate dress or kimono is the most popular image that comes to most people’s minds when they think of a Geisha.
Maiko are considered to be at the peak of traditional Japanese femininity. And their kimono hangs very loosely in the back to accentuate the nape of the neck, which is considered a primary erotic area in Japanese sexuality.
Working as an Asian model has given me the opportunity to become Geisha may times and I am always very excited to have the make-up applied in the traditional Geisha style. Once the make-up is finished and the traditional kimono is worn it is very easy to transform your reality and express the erotic and feminine nature of this very beautiful Japanese tradition.
