Odalisque Erotica

Erotica // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Nil Hoppenot shoots Olga Zbitkovskaja as "Odalisque," a mythical female slave or concubine from Ottoman lore. The model lounges in the dusky haze of the densely blanketed harem, and Hoppenot utilizes her photo skills to create an atmosphere reminiscent of renaissance paintings and storybooks. These photos literally make fairytales real, and the demure, come-hither looks of the model are deeply scintillating. Muted tones of maroon combine with the texture of gauze and carpets to create a faraway sense to these photo's sexuality.  

Sensual Tennis with Anthea

Erotica // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
David Bellemere shoots the impossibly proportioned Anthea in a series of gorgeous, swoon-worthy photos. Caught sexily drinking a thin soda can and donning tennis shoes (only tennis shoes, mind you) for a game of naked-afternoon-tennis, these photos bring an undeniable sex appeal to otherwise mundane everyday activities. Anthea channels Lolita as she swings and sucks on a lollipop while posing for the camera, inviting the viewer in for a few minutes of tennis, an offer anyone would be a fool to pass up.   

Stoya by Sean & Seng

Erotica // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Sean & Seng shoot Stoya in a gritty, urban shoot for POP Spring/Summer 2013. Stoya's lush skin and languid poses contrast dramatically with the dilapidated floors and environments of the shoot. She poses nude and with a dead octopus, working towards an edgy theme of decay. Strong angles and cool colors dominate this photoshoot, while soft fabrics and fashion-wise garmets lend a sense of softness to these dynamic images.  

Eleanor Davis' "Year of the Snake"

Erotica // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Eleanor Davis is a cartoonist and illustrator who has completed an impressive variety of projects and commissions including children's books. Her illustrations for GR2's "Year of the Snake" show have a quietly provocative bent, utilizing the symbolism of the snake in conjunction with her stylized nude figures to connote scenes of a suggestive nature. With a muted, controlled color palette, a restrained application of detail and inclusion of fine patterning, Davis' homages to the zodiac year are sweet and ominous at once.

Erotica // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Photographer Stephan Würth captures the outlaw spirit of the old west in his provocative series "Ghost Town," featuring nude models in a dusty, abandoned locale somewhere deep in the California desert. Although Würth grew up in Munich, Germany, he has an intuitive eye for images that hit at the heart of Americana, embracing the defiance, determination, and acute sense of independence that constitutes the unique mettle of the cowboy soul.
