Pheromone Hotbox @ Steven Kasher Gallery, NYC

Erotica // Monday, March 02, 2015
This show just came down, but is definitely of note because it featured some of our favorite young photographers working today: Steven Kasher Gallery, in conjunction with Kasher|Potamkin, is proud to present the exhibition Pheromone Hotbox. The exhibition showcased the work of five young women photographers: Aneta Bartos, Amanda Charchian, Shae Detar, Olivia Locher, and Marianna Rothen. 

The Mysterious World of Jan Durina

Erotica // Thursday, February 26, 2015
We like the type of photography where elements seem to appear out of nothing, where characters seem to be practicing witchcraft in some black forest in another dimension. And this is where we are at with Jan Durina. We posted about the work back in 2011, and we feel like this is fairytales on acid. 

Reflect Upon This: Nudes in Mirrors by Alva Bernadine

Erotica // Monday, February 23, 2015
These female nudes are of friends, acquaintances and volunteers from the internet. I often trawl charity shops and stores that sell cheap kitsch because I sometimes come across objects and trinkets that may lead to ideas for photos. I came across some small mirrors in a £1 shop. They were selling them for £1 for two. I bought six not knowing what I would do with them...

The Photography of Lars Botten

Erotica // Friday, February 13, 2015
We have seen many photos of Lars Botten over the years, but never could put a name to the images. The Norwegian-born Botten works both in fashion and editorial projects, mixing tasteful nudes with almost nostalgic Hollywood style portraits. 

Nadia Lee Cohen's Erotic Retro Daydream

Erotica // Friday, February 13, 2015
Although only 22 years old and still in her final year at the London College of Fashion, fashion photographer and "ugly-pretty" connaisseur Nadia Lee Cohen has nonetheless already received numerous noteworthy accolades for her highly stylized, retro-saturated images inspired by the darker side of 1960's Americana. Cohen builds her own sets on a shoestring student budget, which is a testament to her skill as her photoshoots never fail to look beautifully polished and conceptually compelling.

PIXXXEL by Jean-Yves Lemoigne

Erotica // Thursday, February 12, 2015
Yatzer, one of the best art and design sites in the world in our opinion, is doing what a lot of people should be doing; getting ready for Valentine's Day and "Fifty Shades of Grey" cinematic release. They celebrated by putting together a compilation of erotic posts, and one was of "PiXXXel" by French photographer Jean-Yves Lemoigne that we remember seeing back in 2009 but thought it was clever. Internet, porn, art direction... a good formula. 

New Book: Psychedelic Sex

Erotica // Thursday, February 12, 2015
In a brief golden span between 1967 and 1972, the sexual revolution collided with recreational drug exploration to create "psychedelic sex." While the baby boomers blew their minds and danced naked in the streets, men’s magazine publishers attempted to visually recreate the wonders of LSD, project them on a canvas of nubile hippie flesh, and dish it up to men dying for a taste of free love.

JORDAN SULLIVAN: "AN ISLAND IN THE MOON"

Erotica // Tuesday, February 10, 2015
This isn't the first time we have posted this beautiful series of nature vs nudes by Jordan Sullivan. His "An Island In the Moon" is our favorite series he has done, but there are a ton of beautiful photos on his site. From his CV, "Jordan Sullivan is a writer and artist living in Los Angeles, California. His photographs and prose have appeared in publications such as Dazed Digital, Dossier Journal, Twin Magazine, VICE, Third Coast, GUP, Art + Design (China), Secret Behavior, and ELLE. He was a finalist for the Third Coast Fiction Award and the Grand Prix de la Découverte/NoFound Prize for experimental photography."

Vintage Works of Jaroslav Vávra

Erotica // Tuesday, February 10, 2015
A gorgeous selection of works from the Olomouc photographer Jaroslav Vávra (1920-1981), who was a member of the significant group of photographers DOFO (1958-1975). Vávra played an important role in the history of Czech photography of the second half of the 20th century, his photographs clearly demonstrate that in the 1960's he was among the prominent representatives and pioneers of nude photography in the country, along with Zden?k Virt and Miroslav Stibor.

The Dark, Iconic Anatomy of Dino Valls

Erotica // Monday, February 09, 2015
Dino Valls is a Spanish painter born in 1959 in Zaragoza. Since 1988, he has lived and worked in Madrid. Building on a childhood passion for drawing, Valls taught himself to paint in oils beginning in 1975. After completing his degree in Medicine and Surgery in 1982, Valls devoted himself full-time to the profession of painting. As one of the Spanish representatives of the vanguard of figurative art, Valls' work displays the strong influence of past masters and their studies of the human being...
