Samantha Harris By Cara Stricker For Karen Magazine

Creeping paranoia, S&M undertones, barely there lingerie, dread…locked in a basement and miles from the beach…Samantha Harris unveils the femme fatale within for Karen Magazine’s chilling new spread, Bound More Than A Madman Is. They mean it quite literally too. Bound to various items of furniture by chain and by ribbon, Harris sheds her girl next door innocence with help from Cara Stricker’s moody lens work and Bex Sheers’ monochromatic styling – including S&M inspired pieces from Rick Owens, Givenchy and Herve Leger. Below are some exclusive outtakes from the shoot as well as an experimental short film directed by Stricker.
