The Tender Tentacles of Daikichi Amano (Very NSFW)

January 27, 2014

 
We think it is this image of the octopus/squid with women's heads bulging out that really got us out of bed this Monday morning...creepy but cool. Japanese photographer Daikichi Amano explores the gruesome connection between Japan's metaphorical and literal consumption of both the female form and creatures of the sea. Octopus carcasses embrace women's naked bodies, dripping across their skin and morphing into weird appendages that blur the line between woman and animal.
