Pink Narcissus by James Bidgood

Erotica // Monday, September 16, 2013
Born in 1933, James Bidgood is an American artist, filmmaker, and photographer currently living and working in New York City. In 1971 he released his arthouse film Pink Narcissus, a dialogue-free fantasy centered around young, muscular, and often naked men. The film took seven years to make, filmed in small increments in Bidgood's small apartment using sets and costumes fashioned by Bidgood himself. He later removed his name from the film due to a conflict of vision between the director and his editors, which resulted in it being misattributed to other directors, such as Andy Warhol, for many years.

Isabel Martinez' "Quantum Blink" Series

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 16, 2013
'According to quantum mechanics we have forty conscious moments per second, and our brains connect this sequence of nows to create the illusion of the flow of time." The photographs in Isabel Martinez' series Quantum Blink consist of two exposures taken one after the other. With in-camera masks, the photographer achieves the striped pattern and allows her to blend two images together and at the same time 'keep them from fully fusing into one another.'

Kincaid Blackwood Photography

Erotica // Saturday, September 14, 2013
Kincaid Blackwood writes erotica and takes erotic photos. He shoots kinky stories that seem both dreamed and real, and doesn't shoot what he thinks will turn someone else on, but rather "whatever story is inside." Blackwood lives in Atlanta, GA, but claims that "no place is really safe from my images." We love the narrative power of his images. NSFW!

Derek Paul Boyle

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 13, 2013
Derek Paul Boyle is interested in the "power of contradiction, the lure of anticipation, and incompatible states of the self. What was once bound is made free, the known made unknown. In a wavering step between angst and serentity, fear and pleasure, I want to give form to anxiety, a shape to tension."

Beautiful Shots from Joel Sossa

In this series "What Does Music Look Like," photographer Martin Klimas pours vibrantly colored paints on a surface resting above a speaker.
