The Fine Art Nudes of Rasmus Mogensen

Erotica // Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Straight from Rasmus' site, because this is our first time seeing this work:  "Rasmus Mogensen wanted to become a photo- grapher from age 8 and began his career wor- king as a photo assistant in Copenhagen and New York. He had his first independent photo exhibition at age 17 at Gallery Photografica in Copenhagen. His fine art photography is now exclusively represented worldwide by the renowned Fahey/Klein Gallery. Based in Paris, and now partly New York, he has been wor- king professionally as a fashion and beauty photographer for the past 15 years.

Cath Riley's Touchy Drawings

Erotica // Monday, March 09, 2015
Cath Riley does for graphite what Bernini did for marble.  ”The drawings are part of an on-going evolutionary process of exploration and development," the artist writes, "and thus serve only to mark and represent a particular stage in my abilities and understanding. Current on-going experimental ‘drawing’ includes very large scale drawing, based around the human figure, which are very different in character from the pencil portrait and ‘flesh’ figure drawings which are featured here. Some of the new work is abstract in nature.” 

Eli Craven's ‘Screen Lovers’

Erotica // Monday, March 09, 2015
In his series ‘Screen Lovers’, Illinois-based artist Eli Craven reinvents through the art of cutting, collaging, and folding. Craven gathered film stills from a photo book, combining beautiful and iconic movie couples while composing the work to produce the romantic and intensely sensual...

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.
