Naturally by Bertil Nilsson

Photography // Tuesday, July 28, 2015
"Growing up in Sweden I spent a lot of time in the forest but my entire adult life living in the city. Through my experiments with dancers and circus artists I came back to explore nature and, maybe because of that childhood connection, it triggered a great sense of adventure in me."

Summertime Beaching with Hilo Chen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 28, 2015
We have absolutely no idea what beach Taiwanese-American artist Hilo Chen goes to create his larger than life hyperreal portraits of woman nude on beaches, but it seems like it could be a nice vacation spot... just sayin. Enjoy the summertime vibes from one of the more accomplished, if not slightly sexy photoreal artists in the world today. Hilo was featured in our Juxtapoz Hyperreal Book that we published in 2014. 

Pirelli - The Calendar. 50 Years And More

Erotica // Monday, July 27, 2015
The notoriously exclusive Pirelli Calendar, featuring glamorous shots of beautiful women, was first published in 1964. Reserved for important clients and VIPs, the calendar has since grown into a legend of its own, showcasing the beauty of models such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Laetitia Casta, Cindy Crawford, Penélope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, Heidi Klum, Angela Lindvall, Sophia Loren, and Kate Moss.

Simple Syrup by Amanda Charchian

Erotica // Friday, July 24, 2015
We have done a bunch of posts on the work of Amanda Charchian on the site, but we just feel she is one of the best young erotic photographers working today. Not all of the work fits into that cateogry, and a lot of her nudes are in nature and composed in unique ways, but the Simple Syrup series is a hazy, almost psychedelic summer beach stoner dream. 

The Power of Body: Black and Whites by Selina Mayer

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 17, 2015
There seems to be a lot of people these days who are dismissive toward nude photography, or tend to think that each photo shoot is some sort of easy way out of addressing the subject. Then you come across the works of Selina Mayer, the North London photographer with such a beautiful sense of light and abstraction, of simple singularity with the subject that you begin to realize just how hard it is to compose a good portrait. 

Homoerotic Works of George Quaintance published by Taschen

Erotica // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
George Quaintance was a master illustrator, and his incredible homoerotic works were created at a time when gay lifestyles were not only being repressed, but illegal in many places. Taschen books, which is one of the great publishers of erotic works, has this fantastic collection, Quaintance, which "traces his remarkable life story and reintroduces his colorful, kitschy and culturally resonant paintings—works that made George Quaintance the most popular and successful physique artist of his time, and one of its most intriguing figures."

Roger Weiss: Human Dilatations_Suspension

Erotica // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
A few weeks ago, we showed you a series of Roger Weiss works around distorted human bodies, and today we have this fantastic series, "Human Dilatations_Suspension". As Weiss notes of this work, "Human Dilatations_Suspension is a glimpse of the lack the contemporary human being, bared of the two elements that distinguish his quest..."

The Collage Work of Rocio Montoya

Erotica // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
We just came across the works of Madrid-based collage artist Rocio Montoya on Empty Kingdom, and we loved the mixture of fashion and a little old-school porn-ish vibe from the set. One series in particular, 1900, is especially interesting, as the artist cuts, re-arranges, and adds to old magazine spreads and intimate scenes. 

Nikolay Bakharev's Amateurs and Lovers

Erotica // Tuesday, July 07, 2015
Photographer Nikolay Bakharev was an orphan (his parents died when he was four) who worked as a mechanic until he developed his profession as a self-trained photographer. He grew up in East Russia near Mongolia, and still lives in Siberia. His work was featured in the "Ostalgia" exhibition in the summer of 2011 at the New Museum in New York which gathered art from Eastern European countries with a curious nostalgia for a painful past. As a critic in the Economist said: "All of this art is political, by the simple act of its creation."

Everything is Fucked: The Work of Paul Yore

Erotica // Tuesday, July 07, 2015
Australian artist Paul Yore is familiar with controversy. His work over the years has been met with intense discussions about censorship and artistic freedom. His art has been seized by police and he has had to defend himself against criminal charges. His work has been described as a "dystopian, fastidiously constructed world drenched in psychedelic color and engaging provactively with issues of gay politics, gender, environmental destructions and capitalist critique."
