The Bird

Erotica // Tuesday, March 13, 2012
'Moving image, moving fashion, fashion film all are names commonly used for a dialect of the visual language that, although not new, is rapidly on its way to becoming the most commonly used.

Michael Rousseau's Classical Shadow

Erotica // Tuesday, March 13, 2012
'Individuality, taboo, vice, sex, beauty, power, impermanence, and more are explored in my work. I use the figure and objects as vehicles to translate these concepts. I strive to create images that portray my perception of culture and society and bridge the gap between classical and modern figurative painting. I am moving away from the literal “portraiture” of my earlier work toward a more open ended visual experience for the viewer.' Michael Rousseau

Erotica // Monday, March 12, 2012

"I'm no artist or psychologist or feminist," says Dal Corso, "but as far as I can, I'm trying to put my models forward, give them some kind of strength and pride, even if nudity is involved. I like them powerful."

Influenced by his mentor Man Ray, surrealist painters Magritte and Balthaus, and filmmaker Luis Buñuel, Bourdin's work similarly continues to inspire photographers worldwide.
