Taking inspiration from the symbol rich mythological and religious works of the Renaissance as well as classic fairy tales and day dreams these works attempt to weave together a landscape where newly discovered heroines and martyrs are explored, canonized and exalted...'  

Boris Ovini for Exhibition Magazine

Erotica // Thursday, March 21, 2013
Ottowa-born, Paris-based photographer Boris Ovini creates an enthralling visual narrative for Exhibition Magazine's 'Leather' issue, delving into female sexuality through the use of equestrian riding crops and various bondage-related accoutrements. The sensuality of the whole series is particularly heightened by Ovini's attention to textures, juxtaposing the different sheens of leather bodice, exposed flesh, and even horse's mane, making for an engaging photo spread you wish you could reach out and touch.

Holiday Debauchery in Treats! Magazine

Erotica // Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Stephanie Vovas captures the progression of a tropical getaway turned naughty for Treats! Magazine #3. The photos seem to chronicle a classy condo party as it devolves into steamy debauchery, complete with bottles of Jameson and moments of "what-the-heck-am-I-doing?" in the bathroom. The spread is a raunchy depiction of sun-drunk fun, though we're sadly aware that no spring break trip has ever included this number of hopelessly-attractive people. Still, you might want to start planning your next vacation now..  

Diora Baird for GQ Italia

Erotica // Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Stephan Wurth shoots the impossibly leggy Diora Baird in variations of black leather for GQ Italia. Commanding and provocative, Baird poses by pool and sea-side, exuding a distinctly italian sexuality. We're hoping every Italian holiday looks something like this.   

An Homage to Anna Nicole Smith

Erotica // Wednesday, March 20, 2013
In this photoseries for Ponystep entitled "I Like Fast Cars, Fast Men and Fast Food," Felicity Hayward embodies the 'blonde bombshell' in a way unseen since the untimely departure of her lifelong idol, Anna Nicole Smith. Donning Anna's signature bleached ringlets and formidable push-up, Hayward captures Anna Nicole Smith's decadent lifestyle with stunning moxie. Once the epitome of pin-up glamour, Nicole Smith also came to represent the instability and fragility of the Hollywood lifestyle. Shot by Miles Aldridge, these photos pay timely homage to the late buxom Playmate.   

S Magazine: 'Days of Being Wild'

Erotica // Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Fran Dominguez's photoseries entitled "Days of Being Young" captures just that--ephemeral, motion-filled portraits of women who are nothing if not young and beautiful. The low-contrast black-and-white gives the sensation of nostalgia. The photos are arranged in diptychs or triptychs, capturing the model's movement moment-to-moment, amplifying the sensation of fleeting time. The series is young and sexy, laced with the ache of nostalgia.   

'What Lies Beneath' for Love Magazine

Erotica // Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott take to the water in a surreal, macabre series exploring the wreckage of a submerged car. The photos speak to tragedy, mythology and deviant sexual play, employing props like bondage ropes, apples, bandages and a swan. The pale, limpid skin tones of the models against the cool water contrast wildly with shocks of bright red fabric, hair and shoes, evoking themes of innocence and experience, blood and snow. The swan approaching a prostrate model is a nod to Leda and the Swan, compounding the theme of deviant sexual acts in this riveting photoseries.
