UV Erotica by Robert BabylonJuxtapoz // Thursday, 10 Jan 2013
Robert Babylon's 'Neon Lights' series was inspired by Babylon's days partying at underground dance clubs, hubs of glow sticks, glow-in-the-dark clothing, and body paint. Viewers' reactions to the edgy work has been positive, he said. "I think because the bodies are blue in the UV work, people find it more acceptable to look at," he said. "I’m most proud of the fact that more women approach me about my photography than men. For me, that’s fantastic."
Babylon has been creating erotic photography for 15 years, capturing everything from raunchy bondage to soft, sensual black-and-whites celebrating the human body, ever since he became bored of his work at the British National Space Programme. Taking a risk, he followed his passion for photography -- a hobby since he was 15 -- teaming up with his equally open-minded wife, Caroline Martin, to create erotic art.
