  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    In her 2009 photographic series "Tokyo Hotel Story", the artist continues her exploration of female sexuality, stereotypes and their decoding. During a month-long residency at "Alpha In", one of the largest S&M - love hotels in Tokyo, Daoust photographed women in their private rooms, surrounded by their work paraphernalia and dressed in the regalia that defines their actions. Her work takes the viewer beyond the classical taboos and shows them images of the universal human desire to escape reality and create fantasy worlds. The images constantly oscillate between dream, reality and fiction.

Nathalie Daoust

Canada Born in: 1977
Nathalie Daoust was born in Montreal, Canada, where she studied photography at the Cegep du Vieux-Montreal before moving to New York City. This is where she wrote her first book on photography called "New York Hotel Story". In 2001 she moved to Japan for a period of two years to document the red light district of Tokyo. Since then, she has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Canada, United States, Poland, Spain, England and Tokyo. Her photographs have been subject to many publications and were awarded.

The artist is mainly interested in themes like intimacy and sensuality, and through her photos she is able to show the secrets hiding behind the apparent stability of life. Nathalie Doust creates a link between truth, dreams and the desire to get away. Always on the look out for new emotions, the photographer works with new mediums and discovers a new black room technique.
