Have you ever heard about Tokyo’s underground fetish party Department H? Take a look inside the popular event here. 

Going wild gets a new definition when entering Department H in Tokyo Kinema Club – one of Japan’s most popular fetish parties. You can just watch or be a part of the action. You can hide or be exposed. You can bring food and drinks for everyone, experience different shows and a variety of fetishism. And you can see all kinds of costumes and a lot of skin – like you’d expect it from an event like this. But DepH is more than that. It’s an underground culture and a safe space. 

Together with the models Jovana Krneta and Fernando Capiberibe photographer Marija Šehanović explored the iconic party, which the government is allegedly not so happy about. But Department H is here to stay. With the editorial depH she mixes fashion shoot and documentary series.
