Voyeurism has been a them in Japanese literature ever since the first written texts appeared. A visual game of hide and seek known as kaimami ("peering through") was popular in the 9th century, when voyeurs would peep through gaps in fences or blinds, hoping to spy enchanting and possibly nude silhouettes. A similar practice became popular in Japan in the 1980s, when the ultimate bliss was to peek under a skirt and catch a glimpse of white cotton panties momentarily revealed by fortuitous movement.
This is why Ken-ichi Murata's photographs disclose so much about the Japanese psyche: the they show the paradox of an unveiled, fully visible and willing body, which nevertheless eludes the eye of its beholder. Gazing into the camera with inscrutable expressions, Ken-ichi's princess-like models do not merely expose their lovely vulvas and the petite rosettes of their anuses, but also reveal something incorporeal, nearly incomprehensible and bordering on pure emotion.
These gorgeous photos by Ken-ichi Murata, and the unobstructed views they offer under the indiscreetly lifted skirts of his youthful models, are simply delightful! Sometimes we see white or colored panties, other times the girls' nude pubes are in full view. Luscious, artistic visions from the land of cherry blossoms...
