Alexis Hunter: The Model's Revenge and More

Photography // Wednesday, December 17, 2014
We lost an important conceptual artist and feminist theorist this year in New Zealand born photographer Alexis Hunter. One of the few things I bookmarked in my researched this year was a fantastic obituary published by the Guardian at the time of her death, that does the artist way more justice than anything I can writer here. 

The Nude Drawings of Carmel Jenkin

Erotica // Tuesday, December 16, 2014
We can't believe in all the years we have run the Erotica blog on Juxtapoz.com, we have not posted these beautiful paintings and drawings of Carmel Jenkin. We came across these this morning, and like another great artist that paints and draws the human form, Rene Almanza, this series by Jenkin has a classic sense to them, and somewhere we think Egon Schiele is happy. 

Nudes and Portraits by Ed Ross

Erotica // Monday, December 15, 2014
Ed Ross is brilliant portrait photographer, and we were taking a look at his nude portraits this morning and realized that we had not posted about his work in a few years. All his portraits are Tintypes, and he talks a lot about "wet plates,"  aka collodion, a photographic process dates from 1851, when talking about his work. Enjoy.

Nudes and Photos by Seoul's RangBang

Erotica // Thursday, December 11, 2014
We are just loving this series of black and white photos from Seoul, South Korea's RangBang, aka Sanghyeok Bang. Just a fantastic sense of light and shadows, sexual and voyeurtistc black and whites that hypnotize you as you gaze and wander through the series. 

Ewa Doroszenko: Simulated Tortures

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 10, 2014
The installation comprises photographs of a woman’s body and several common office tools – a stapler, a pair of scissors, a punch, etc. The form of the photographs has been disturbed with physical stimuli, like piercing the paper, burning or sewing it with a thread. It is not a real body, but its photographic representation that undergoes tortures in the project. However, the stimuli that act on the (photographed) body are authentic and painful, indeed. Piercing, injuring and cutting the photographs serve as a simulation for real “pain test” - a deliberate act of inflicting physical suffering.

Erotica // Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Erotica // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Professor of design, drawing, and photography in UC Berkeley's architecture department, Jean-Paul Bourdier concentrates on the beauty and geometry of the human body in his collection of photographs entitled "Bodyscapes," combining landscape and flesh as canvas without the use of digital manipulation.

Polly Penrose: "A Body Of Work"

Erotica // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
We know this isn't traditionally known as "erotica," but because of the NSFW nature, it resides in this section. But Polly Penrose's serios "A Body Of Work" has such a command of color, structure and form, and we love her comment that "It feels like I’m hammering my body into the landscape of the room, one picture at a time."

The Erotic Works of Beijing's Zhang Jingna

Erotica // Monday, November 24, 2014
When we saw that Kris Kuksi named Beijing-born artist Zhang Jingna as his favorite artist in Joshua Liner Gallery's "Your Favorite Artist's Favorite Aritst," we were intrigued to find out more about the now NYC-based photographer. And what we found were some dark, cinematic, personal and commericial works that span the globe.
