Shen Wei's Nude Self

Erotica // Wednesday, September 23, 2015
In his series, I Miss You Already, photographer Shen Wei explores the intersections of identity, desire, nature and reflection. The series is composed of self portraits taken over several years and the scenery varies dramatically from image to image. At times, other subjects enter Wei’s aperture, but these characters are always peripheral to the work, which continues to burrow into the self.

Hajime Sorayama "Editions" @ AISHONANZUKA, Hong Kong

Erotica // Monday, September 14, 2015
One of our favorite Japanese artists who tends to make work in what you would call the "erotic" world, Hajime Sorayama, just opened a new solo show at Aishonazuka in Hong Kong. We did a feature on Hajime in our December 2014 issue, where he said things like, "I don't know what beauty means yet. I don't think we can understand each other truly." And he also said, "I'm an orthopedic surgeon and mad scientist of sorts." The show runs through October 3, 2015.

Erotica // Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Anton Belovodchenko’s Bodyscapes series of photographic female nudes document the details of his models’ contorted positions.

Lynn Bianchi's Spaghetti and Dessert Eaters

Erotica // Wednesday, July 29, 2015
The scenarios Lynn Bianchi constructs emphasize the irony of body-consciousness. Small and heavy women cavort nude in celebratory displays of eating and dressing, challenging our ideals on weight, beauty and sexuality. Playing off Vargas pin-up girls, dress-up plays on sexuality, her work shows that every woman has import, in a nude spaghetti-eating way.

Uno Moralez: Graphic Graphics

Erotica // Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Talented Russian illustrator Uno Moralez works in a graphic, near analog, bit-style, creating nostalgic, compelling illustrations that are both grotesque and beautiful.

Takato Yamamoto's "Heisei Estheticism"

Erotica // Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Takato Yamamoto's artwork is the brilliant, heavy-lidded daughter of illustration, sex and violence. Yamamoto's lush linework and exacting compositions depict young asian women in serene moments studded with darker narrative punchlines. Scenes of bondage and violence bleed slowly into the image as you look longer, yet Yamamoto never depicts any acts of violence--it is either impending or just completed...

Simple Syrup by Amanda Charchian

Erotica // Friday, July 24, 2015
We have done a bunch of posts on the work of Amanda Charchian on the site, but we just feel she is one of the best young erotic photographers working today. Not all of the work fits into that cateogry, and a lot of her nudes are in nature and composed in unique ways, but the Simple Syrup series is a hazy, almost psychedelic summer beach stoner dream.
