Ollie Henderson | Richard Truscott | Marie Claire Australia July 2012 | The Flower and the Willow

Richard Truscott is the photographer in a truly spectacular editorial starring Ollie Henderson for Marie Claire Australia’s July issue. Ollie enters the world of the geisha, styled impeccably by Jane Roarty in ‘The Flower and the Willow’.

Writing about the book “Geisha: Women of Japan’s Flower & Willow World”, authors Tina Skinner and Mary L. Martin, Amazon says:

Enter a world dripping in symbolism, elevated by accomplishment. For the Westerner, it is a world of exotic misconceptions, characterized by a male fantasy of the submissive Asian beauty devoted to his pleasure. Equally exotic to the average Japanese, Geisha embody the highest level of a proud culture. Geisha are accomplished in music, letters, and the intricate art of the tea ceremony. Epitomizing feminine grace and beauty, geisha are always carefully adorned, every hair oiled into place, and every step and gesture perfectly executed. The comprehensive text introduces historical background about the talented geisha entertainers and other women who were indentured in virtual slavery within the famed and idealized “Flower and Willow World.” High-class prostitutes, as well as lowly tea servers are pictured, and the life of early 20th century women in Japan is explored. The symbolic kimono, poses, and accouterments of the women photographed are explained in captioning that will help to open the eyes of many Westerners to Japanese culture, and help to debunk misconceptions regarding the status and nature of geisha. For the Japanese historian, this is the best source of original imagery ever assembled within two covers about Geisha. For anyone with even a casual interest in this utterly unique culture, this book will prove a captivating page turner.
