Tom of Finland: Early Work 1944 – 1972

Erotica // Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Touko Laaksonen a.k.a. Tom of Finland (1920 – 1991) is widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential artists for his revolutionary representation of the male figure. His drawings of fantastically muscled men engrossed in acts of homoerotic desire comprise one of the most inventive portrayals of the human body in modern times. These pictures of gay men as virile, confident, and unashamed–equally radical for their near-illicit, underground distribution–originated an empowering queer iconography and liberating spirit that increasingly inspires popular culture.

In the Magazine: Maria Kreyn

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Through an arched window, I watched twilight fall softly on the surrounding viking bay and smooth granite islands until a door hinge creaked from across the cavernous room. Momentarily breaking my enchantment, a set of double doors opened slowly and poured forth a fluorescent glow. A floating head emerged from the beams and materialized into an angelic face whose gaze pierced the air before slipping back into retreat, closing the doors again.

The Darkness: Photography by Bill Henson

Erotica // Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Australian photographer Bill Henson has long been a staple in the photography world, sometimes with controversty attached (see wikipedia). But this series is dark, mysterious, a little creepy, as you go in and out of the light and see subjects emerge and fall back into the darkness. Yes, Henson has an odd track record of picking models, but these photos are arresting to say the least.
