"Taboo’ Photos Reveal The Dual Lives Of Everyday People Who Practice BDSM (NSFW)"
Forest McMullin has spent a significant portion of his photography career snapping photos of what he calls “fringe social groups.” With his camera, he offers an intimate glance into the lives of everyone from incarcerated men in New York to members of religious supremacist groups in Pennsylvania, highlighting — with a documentary lens — some often unseen fragments of American culture.

During the day, they are mothers and businessmen in the South who lead “normal” lives — or, at least, publicly acceptable lives that conform to constructed social norms.
