Nudes and Portraits by Ed Ross

Erotica // Monday, December 15, 2014
Ed Ross is brilliant portrait photographer, and we were taking a look at his nude portraits this morning and realized that we had not posted about his work in a few years. All his portraits are Tintypes, and he talks a lot about "wet plates,"  aka collodion, a photographic process dates from 1851, when talking about his work. Enjoy.

We are just loving this series of black and white photos from Seoul, South Korea's RangBang, aka Sanghyeok Bang. Just a fantastic sense of light and shadows, sexual and voyeurtistc black and whites that hypnotize you as you gaze and wander through the series.

This series has had us in a good mood all morning, with its oddly surreal details and hidden pleasures in each shot. Some are more on a new erotic type style, others are just plain oddball, but mostly these are well-executed works from the Rennes/Paris-based artist Ines Kozic.

We have no idea how our Erotica editor found these last year, but let's bring them back for Football day, er, Thanksgiving.

Erotica // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
We know this isn't traditionally known as "erotica," but because of the NSFW nature, it resides in this section. But Polly Penrose's serios "A Body Of Work" has such a command of color, structure and form, and we love her comment that "It feels like I’m hammering my body into the landscape of the room, one picture at a time."

These particular works have a lovely erotic undertone, focusing on the darker edges of sexuality.
