Komari is one of Araki’s frequent models he collaborated with over a longer lasting relationship, that were of romantic, sexual, and artistic nature. This picture was taken for the photo book titled »L'amant d'août« (August Lover), and Komari's name stands beside Araki's at the cover as an author. It is part of a sequence, where she poses on a river. A poem introduces the image spread: »In the stream lives a devil. If you resist, it hurts you. If you let it happen, it takes you all the way«.
