Gorgeous and wide-ranging, this collection of works by established and up-and-coming photographers showcases new developments in erotic photography.
The invention of photography gave artists a new means of expression—and a new way of depicting the human body. This elegant, compelling collection of images from new and established photographers demonstrates how technology has altered the genre—not only in terms of technique, but also composition, theme, and content. This incredibly diverse collection features the works of more than 30 artists from around the world, including Evan Baden’s explorations of the ways youth culture views sex, intimacy, and privacy; Noritoshi Hirakawa’s erotic and intimate portraits, which challenge mainstream conceptions of sexuality and heterosexual desire; David Bellemere’s dreamlike works, which are inspired by 1970s aesthetics, nature, light and the female body shape; and Ana Kraš’s surreal photographs that seem like they were taken coincidentally. At once cutting-edge and tasteful, this compelling volume presents a wide range of erotic photography.
