Javier Godoy

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Based in Murcia, Spain, artist Javier Godoy graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia with a degree in Fine Art. A self-professed perfectionist, Godoy is obsessed with every aspect of the art-making process from composition to finish. His tightly composed and loosely stylized images also posses a wickedly wry sense of humor (we're looking at you, pin-up wookie).  

Ziegfeld Girls

Erotica // Monday, April 09, 2012

After his death in 1971, a large cache of artistic, daring, and un-retouched nude images was discovered in his home: too provocative for the 1920's, but just right for the 21st century.

Prabuddha Dasgupta for Vogue India

Erotica // Friday, April 06, 2012
Prabuddha Dasgupta is a self-taught photographer who grew up in the cultural chaos of post-colonial India. In 1996, Dasgupta broke a taboo by publishing 'Women', a controversial collection of portraits and nudes of urban Indian women. With that gesture, he reinstated the nude to its rightful place in the Indian cultural discourse; after 200 years of Victorian morality imposed by the British colonialists had almost erased sexuality from artistic expression... in the very home of the Kamasutra.
