Hauntingly Beautiful by Alexis Wood

Erotica // Thursday, October 09, 2014
Photographer Alexis Wood has a great resume shooting for high-end and widely read fashion mags, but we love this new series she shot called "Hauntingly Beautiful" featuring model Annamarie Bartolozzi. Of course putting someone in the woods with a good photographer is going to make for a good shoot, but the use of facepaint and costume makes this particularly an interesting take on fine art and fashion photography.

Pop Art x Erotic Surrealism with John Wesley

Erotica // Wednesday, October 08, 2014
Born in 1928 in New York, artist John Wesley received his BFA from UCLA in 1950. Wesley's minimal range of colors and cartoon-like line work led him to be placed in the pop-art category in the 1960s. This series of works focuses on his subject's range of fleshy tones, again keeping a simple color palate of complimentary blue and yellow backgrounds. We found a great description of Wesley as a Pop Artist and Erotic Surrealist. We can go with that.

Photographs by Hermann Försterling

Erotica // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Hermann Försterling is a German painter and photographer whose photographs of the human body we have been admiring for the last couple weeks. Using a copper plate etching technique that transfers the photographs to hand-made papers, the artists creates often uncomfortable images of an almost corpselike presentation of the human body. At the same time, the photographs are a beautiful celebration of the human form. Be sure to explore his site for more work!
