Carlos Nunez: 'I Will Sell Your Bones'

Erotica // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Carlos Nunez shoots his doe-eyed, long-legged model in a variety of poses that speak to serious voyeurism. With demure turn and playful lowering of a panty-strap, the model eyes the camera like a tentative girlfriend. Seen playing her guitar or clutching an old film camera in the nude, these pictures capture a retro sensibility, showing the tender inner-life of a bangs-and-floral-print indie girl. We have a feeling these photos are supposed to make you feel uncomfortable and turn you on at the same time.

Olga Sherer's Subtle Play

Erotica // Wednesday, April 17, 2013
This brief photoseries is both sweet and sexy. Olga Sherer poses casually under the two-tone caress of the turquoise lights, casting a shadow that feels just as alive as the model. She covers herself with an informal paw, the slick glitter and ruddy blush of her cheeks conjuring visuals of little girls or circus performers. Subtle elements of the photo give away an underlying deviant plot-- a necklace of drying liquid streaks down her chest, the residue of some playful activity. Sofia Sanches and Mauro Mongiello capture a fun, provocative moment with these photos.

Mike Spears' photos combine the erotic body with the urban landscape in a way we've never seen before. He shoots casual, unassuming beauties-- fresh women with a distinctly urban appeal-- in their industrial habitats, juxtaposing soft flesh with sharp horizontals. Spears' photography explores the habitat of the contemporary woman and her relationship with an increasingly citified world. These photos are strange and awesome-- they make us want to get to know these women better, especially if they live in that apartment across the street.

Richardson uses black and white film with stunning effect, paying homage to the saloon photography of the era while imbuing the images with his signature cheek. These photos are endlessly playful, an erotic take on the raunch of the old west ranch.
