Extraordinary work by portrait painter, illustrator, and muralist master Terry Rodgers. His large-scale realistic portraits and social scenes are painted with a depth that goes beyond mere illustration into a psychological report of various personalities and ways of life. Exposing the upper class American lifestyle in his paintings, Rodgers captures subtle expressions and interactions, revealing the unspoken attitudes of his subjects.
An inspiration to many Photographer friends of mine. Australian Photographer Bill Henson is a passionate and visionary explorer of twilight zones, of the ambiguous spaces that exist between day and night, nature and civilization, youth and adulthood, male and female.
Nobuyoshi Araki is one of Japan’s best-known photographers. His work is infused with an intense sexuality, Araki is probably best known for his photos documenting the Japanese sex industry, focusing on the Kabukicho district of Shinjuku in Tokyo in the 1980s.
Quality fashion and beauty photography from art director turned Photographer David Byun.
Great work by Italian artist Francesco D’Isa. It’s always great to see an artist re-invent themselves (in this case, Francesco has made the move from digital photo manipulation to vector art over the years). Despite the move to a completely different technique, Francesco’s work is still as curiously erotic, witty, dark and sensual as ever.
“I must be the luckiest man alive. I not only get to meet and photograph the world’s most beautiful women, but when I’m not in the studio or on location I fly Chinook and Huey helicopters for the Italian army!”
The soft nude photography of Italian Photographer Gabriele Rigon.
“The Iconival is a travelling circus in the Rabelais tradition. Its performers are icons from myth and culture, engaged in acts both sublime and ridiculous in an attempt to subvert perception and confound belief. I followed the Iconival from Australia, to America and finally to Britain, photographing the performers ‘off stage left’, in a rubicon of budget hotels, armed with a trusty Rollei and a big piece of paper.”
Netherlands born Illustrator Irene Maria Jacobs has a sweet portfolio and hey, you know how they say “I love your old stuff better than your new stuff”, well that’s out the window in Irene’s case. I love her new work.
Selfellatio is a site in which an anonymous exhibitionist takes photos of himself sucking his own penis. He even has a forum dedicated to oral masturbation and don’t miss reading his faq, I found it hillarious! He runs a blog too.
Super sexy work by Paris-based illustrator Stephane Manel (be sure to check out the archives for the lot!).
Unique and surreal flowing style by illustrator and motion graphics designer Linn Olofsdotter from Sweden.
Fashion for fashion’s sake, the fashion photographer Bernard Bertrand.
Shame his site is buggy to use and his images are so small but there’s some really nice work despite by Holland born Photographer Carli HermÃ¨s.
Dutch Artist Faiyaz Jafri is the guy behind the refreshingly original, bizzare and cute 3-dimentional digital work at Bam-b.
“Hello, I am Leonidas. 21yo, Athens, Greece. I take pictures. Documenting my life, in a way. I love polaroids, dolls and porn. I only use colour film and yaaaawn yawn at b/w. I think there should be more male nudes. I love low resolution photos, crappy lenses and toy cameras. Andy Warhol and Wolfgang Tillmans are heroes.”
Sexy polished fashion photography by French Photographer Bruno Fabbris.
Super nice work from New York based Fashion Photographer David Ferrua.
The strange, wonderful and humorous erotic photography of Irish born Photographer Bob Carlos Clarke who sadly passed away on the 25th March 2006.
Great work by Italian Artist Saturno ButtÃ³. His oil paintings seem to be connected to the sphere of mysticism, Christianity, suffering (with references to martyrdom and crucifixion). His work is suspended in time as the subject matter feels contemporary amongst very classical compositions and settings. There’s also an underlying theme of S/M and the dark black and red tones consistent in all of his work makes for an erotic charge. (via).
Australian artist Ross Watson’s paintings focus on the configuration of the body in imagined and real landscapes. His refined realism style makes his surreal paintings exciting to view. “Surrealism has always been an interchangeable influence on my work, I love paintings people look at and imagine walking into that scene thinking ‘Well, it’s not totally unfeasible’.”.
Soap Magazine. I haven’t been able to find out any more about this Czech magazine. Issue 1 and 1 are downloadable as PDF files but it’s issue 3 where it looks like they’ve really upped the ante and come up with the goods.
With themes of temptation and indulgence I love Will Cotton’s artwork of figures within fantasy landscapes. From pools of custard or hills of pastry, young girls gorge themselves or lie tired as if to portray bliss (or nausea!).
Ladies Weapons: “Using leopard skins, brightly lacquered colors, inset jewels and fake furs, I create a range of specialized items for wives of mafia bosses, arms dealers, sophisticated ladies and exigent soldiers….hybrids born from Italian obsession for high fashion as well as for violence”
The sexy and deadly work of Italian Artist Antonio Riello.
New York based Photographer Ryan Pfluger feels that there is a strong, vulnerable connection between the individual, their sense of self, their surroundings, and their bodies. Ryan uses his photography as a way to facilitate emotions and capture them on film, and he continues to push the envelope in regards to sex, sexuality, gender, and the relationship between an individual and their surroundings.
