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.

The World According to Anne Barlinckhoff (NSFW)

Erotica // Tuesday, June 02, 2015
In terms of fashion photographers who work with minimal resources and let nature do most of the talking (whether model or nature), Anne Barlinckhoff does some of the best work in the world. She says of her photography and commissioned work, whether for Vice or gallery works, "In my photographs combining the human form, nature and animals. I am always searching for something that I never would expect to happen, that I could not anticipate...

Amanda Charchian and Jose Romussi Make Ghostly Fun

Erotica // Thursday, May 28, 2015
We are huge fans of Amanda Charchian's photography on this site, and think of her as one of the best working right now. The LA-based artist just has a fantastic sense of color and composition, and places nudes in nature that create this seductive balance. Today, we take a look at the collaboration of Jose Romussi, a Chilean artist, and Charchian's photography, and great mix of space and illustrative effects. 

The Magical Mystery that is Ren Hang (NSFW)

Erotica // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Chinese photographer Ren Hang is a bit of a mystery, Not because there isn't a look of work and books out with the work, and we have covered Ren multiple times over the years, but because you get the feeling that there is something revolutionary happening in the works. No special effects are needed, and the nudes and non-nudes sort of fall into a pattern and poetry together, making the work powerful even though there is subtleness in each piece. 

A Point Moving on a Crooked Curve by Maurizio Di Iorio

Erotica // Saturday, May 23, 2015
We were skimming through the Gestalten book, Forever, a great title of some of the best tattoo work going on today. Yatzer did a whole look at the book, but we remembered we had posted about Maurizio Di Iorio's series of work titled "A Point Moving on a Crooked Curve" a scantily clad shoot portraying a natural narrative of rebellion.

The Work Nate Walton (NSFW)

Photography // Thursday, May 21, 2015
We’ve shared Nate Walton’s work in the past and today we revisited his Tumblr finding a bunch of new stuff, so why not keep you updated? Walton is Los Angeles-based photographer, whose grainy, naturally lit film photos more often than not focus on the subject of women (predominately their butts we’ve come to notice), but occasionally some other great stuff slides in there as well.

The Works of Caris Reid

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Caris Reid currently has work up at Circuit 12 in Dallas, and we think its a good time to showcase the last few bodies of work from the Washington, DC-born artist. We are huge fans of Circuit 12, and even more so now, huge fans of Caris' work, which has a bit of vintage-portrait style mixed with the best and greatest playing cards you will ever see. Can't wait to see more in the near future...
