Bankers at the Poolside

Erotica // Friday, June 01, 2012
Tomer Hanuka's 'Bankers at the Dawn of Civilization' for Playboy Magazine is perfect example of a wild poolside bash in Vegas. 'This would have been disturbing if it wasn't so prevalent. They took the bailout cash, pocketed it as bonuses and blew it on coke and whores in Vegas. The 1st sketch had to be cleaned up somewhat, to keep it classy.' The final poolside party and some process shots from Hanuka- great progression ha.

Matt Shields Photography

Erotica // Friday, June 01, 2012
There is a definite softness and dreamy appeal in the work of Matt Shields. His photographs portray a lightly romantic use of exposure and natural lighting, creating a subtly provocative image, effortlessly. His portfolio varies between some beautifully double shots, more hard edged erotic portraiture and muses that are as fresh and innocent as new cotton linens.

From Italy with Lust

Erotica // Thursday, May 31, 2012
If you were to ask me to name my most favorite erotic artists of all time, classic or new, the work of Zoe Lacchei would consistently turn up at the top of my list. Passionate, sensual and full of animalistic lust, Zoe's dedication to her craft portraying provocative, near-bestiality is absolutely stunning. Zoe Lacchei grew up in a small town near Rome, kind of a quiet place far from the chaos of the city, where her bashful and introvert character originated...

Bearded Ladies by Arvida Bystrom (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
The work of young photographer (like 20 years old-young) Arvida Bystrom consistently catches my eye. Whether its the dark erotic GIF's, or series of sexy bearded nudes- (hey, there's something for everyone) the appeal of her work is unavoidable. She's young and talented, and uses topics confronting gender, love, age and beauty stereotypes in her work. She has a couple editorials for Vice under her belt and with work like this, she will continue to stop me dead in my tracks.

Diary of a Smutographer

Erotica // Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Elvis Di Fazio’s fine art background has served him well, with his artistic sensibilities freeing him from the technical boundaries that prevent so many young photographers from forging into new territory. Bright and ballsy, Di Fazio’s photos flash with kitsch erotica  and his style has quickly unfurled, dancing from precise and emotive portraiture with a classic bent to something distinctly modern in its appeal. 'I want to put the dick back into ridiculous...

Erotica // Tuesday, May 29, 2012
A flip through of a classic book from Steve Diet Goedde- "The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II", which was released by Edition Stemmle in 2001 following the success of the first volume which came out 3 years prior. This book focused primarily on the work that he did after he moved to Los Angeles from Chicago in 1998. Los Angeles provided a new environment and light to work with and made it possible to create this fetish masterpiece, and now you can say you've seen it! (Make your own soundtrack)
