Bondage scenes always depict a rather hairy situation, yet The Crying Game photo series takes this a bit more literally than most. It appears as though this captive model is not just bound, but she is bound by her own braids.

Shot by fashion photographer Marco D’Amico, The Crying Game photo series is like any other typical fetish-themed photo shoots except for this Rapunzel-like element. The fact that the model is set upon an opulent backdrop furthers this fairy tale feeling that has taken a rather tragic turn. Rapunzel herself was trapped in a tower, although her long hair was the source of her freedom, not her captivity.

Yet D’Amico was not inspired by Rapunzel, but rather by the 'The Crying Game' song, hence the shoot's title.
