Yakuza

An Erotic Photo Novel

By Thomas Hodges and M.Christian

 

Yakuza is truly unique project about two people, a man and a woman, who, at first, felt torn between two worlds, but who come to understand – though their passion, their sexuality, the meeting of the their souls and spirits — that where they first saw conflict and isolation that there is actually a power in becoming the best of their separate worlds.

Alan is a man with the land of his birth, France, on one side and on the other his life as Yakuza, a member of Japanese organized crime.  Gaining the trust of a local family boss, his Yakuza Oyabun, he has risen through the ranks by his ruthlessness and his coolly calculating intelligence.  But no matter how high he rises within his crime family, his foreign birth will always keep him away from being truly accepted: Alan, no matter what he does or how well he does it, will always be the outsider.  That is, until he meets Natsuki, and he will understand that he is, and will always be, a part of something: the land of himself.

Natsuki is a woman caught in the strange domain where, on one side, she is Japanese, and so must be demure, polite, and most of all respectable, and on the other her own heated desires.  Her world was a one of simple colors, of a life mapped out and planned by the culture she was born into.  But then comes Alan, the exotic, the strange, the different, and she becomes enraptured by him and the colors running over his body in the form of his traditional Yakuza tattoos.  And with his colors, and his passion, will come for her a way to bridge her desires as well as her role in society.  With Alan will come a way for her to use him to paint her own unique canvas of life.

Yakuza, too, is a book that is also the best of both worlds: a project that straddles the visual and the literary, the photographic and the linguistic, the voyeuristic and the immersive.  Yakuza is a story, told with photographs – or a novel illustrated with images.

Created by famed photographic artist Thomas Hodges, and renown erotic author M.Christian, Yakuza is a beautiful, striking, and most of all, poignant work of sex, sensuality and passion.  Yes, Yakuza is explicit and erotic, but beyond the passion of its characters and its artist and writer, Yakuza is a work that does in its execution what its characters do within it: they show that despite differences, the gap between photographs and words, there is power and beauty in creating something with the strength of the two.

In Yakuza, Alan and Natsuki learn to be together, in their lives as well as their cultures, instead of apart — and so do Thomas Hodges and M.Christian demonstrate that the imagery of photography and the immersive nature of literature can also combine to create something special and truly memorable.

 

Thomas Hodges, a British national, currently residing in Italy, specializes in the art-nude and erotic-nude genres, but also produces a limited amount of work in abstract, architecture and landscape. Commercially, Thomas works in the Fashion and Beauty sectors, although this is progressively being replaced by his work in the movie industry, shooting film stills.

In 2006, Thomas founded the art movement “Imaginism”, primarily to encapsulate his own style of imagery. Regardless whether the image be that of the naked female form, an architectural monument, an urban or rural landscape of an unidentifiable abstraction, apply your imagination to see beyond what your eyes first behold!
