Artful Nudes by Fashion Photog Julien Vallon

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 19, 2015
Pre-Conscience/Conscience, or PCS/CS for short, is an experimental art series by fashion photographer Julien Vallon who has clients such as Kanye West, Vogue, L’Officiel Brasil and Adidas. This artful nude series is “a long reflection on subconscious movement.” Julien explains: “During several hours, according to Jung’s precepts, I try to open the inside world of my models to reveal their true identity through their own movement, until each impulse becomes natural.”

"Lover" by Will Hoffman and Julius Metoyer (NSFW)

Erotica // Thursday, June 18, 2015
We wanted to make a film that wasn’t about watching sex, but instead, triggered memories of the way you felt when emotionally surrendered with a partner. That moment where you let go of judgment or self-consciousness and just open yourself up to impulse and desire.

Paintings by Alexandra Rubinstein

Erotica // Wednesday, June 17, 2015
From a series titled "Celebrity Cunnilingus" which combines "men women potentially view as sexy with an under-represented sexual act" to a series of paintings of un-cropped stills taken from vintage porn films made during the Golden Age of Porn that was launched with the well-known "Deep Throat," Alexandra Rubinstein questions progression in sexuality and value placed on female pleasure as pornography become more accessible and mainstream.

The Powerful Portraits of Jo Schwab (NSFW)

Erotica // Tuesday, June 16, 2015
We have had some of these portraits in our desktop folder that reads "Check Out More" for a few weeks now, and I just love this series of powerful and bold portraits by Jo Schwab. There is such clarity in each shot, and each model, nude or otherwise, has such command and unique being that you can't help but want to take time on each photo. 

The Forgotten Future of Bogdan Rata (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Romanian scultpor Bogdan Rata's brand of hybrid realism engenders bizarre combinations of human anatomy based on a "forgotten future," producing "replications of reality" reminiscent of the virtual world of Blade Runner. We take a new look at the work today. 

Laura Krifka's Seduction and Punishment

Erotica // Monday, June 15, 2015
Laura Krifka explores the subject of transgression and punishment through painting, film, sculpture and video. Her most recent exhibition at CB1 Gallery, Reap the Whirlwind, was a show wrapped in the language of seduction, beauty and the sublime, set against a backdrop of a classic American landscape.

The Mysterious World of Russian Photographer, Andrew Pashis

Erotica // Thursday, June 11, 2015
Ever since we saw the work of Russian photographer Andrew Pashis' work in Taschen's fantastic "The Erotic Photography 2", we have been on a mission to learn more about the man. And you know what? There isn't much out there! He is a mystery to us, and besides the photo spread you see above, or search has yielded minimal results. What we have found is a bizarre collection of nudes, summer time fun, and almost hostile vibes. 

Logan White: LA Nudes (NSFW)

Erotica // Wednesday, June 10, 2015
We have been following the photography of Logan White for a long time, and again, through the fantastic new book, Desire: New Erotic Photography (Prestel), we came across her series, "LA Nudes." Logan has always created a very surreal experience when it comes to her subjects, and as you can see from her exhibition history, she has taken the work to a fine art level. Great stuff. 

And There is a Darkness: The Works of Noritoshi Hirakawa

Erotica // Tuesday, June 09, 2015
We will start by saying we don't know much about the works of Noritoshi Hirakawa, but we found a new series of the Jaoanese photographers work in a great new book by Prestel, "Desire: New Erotic Photography" and wanted to share some of our favorite works from the collection. Hirakawa comes first... 

A Rare Super-8 Silent Film by Guy Bourdin

Fashion // Thursday, June 04, 2015
Guy Bourdin was a painter and legendary fashion photographer whose style has been pervasively appropriated in pop culture. Mentored by Man Ray, he avoided the limelight, focusing strictly on the creation of arresting pictures. Despite staging surreal mise en scènes for high-end brands like Vogue, fashion was the last thing on his mind. Sometimes, on the set of his shoots, Bourdin would bring out a super-8 cine camera, an example of which you can watch above.
