The Los Angeles based Iranian photographer Nedda Afsari, who works under the moniker Muted Fawn, is known for photographing her friends in plastic-clad bondage gear, and in dark BDSM-inspired power play scenarios. She has shot portraits of St. Vincent, Chelsea Wolfe and indie Los Angeles musician King Woman, and is known for pinpointing the space between fetish and fragility.

Afsari also recently released her first book, UNMUTED, which highlights people at their most vulnerable. She also recently opened a solo show at Lethal Amounts Gallery in Los Angeles.

“Photography has allowed me to deeply connect to myself and to others,” Nedda told i-D. “The subject and I know what is going on and what was explored during the photo shoot. We don’t need to explain with words.”
