Jean-Paul Four - Women peeing
















Similar to Gilles Berquet (here) and Frédéric Fontenoy (there), Jean-Paul Four is a French photographer rather obsessed by the erotism of women pissing. Of course, this may not be shared by anybody but personally I see beauty in this urinary stream spurting out from a vulva. Something fierce and regenerating. Here of course, the imagery is more sexual than purely aesthetical and metaphysical but it's in no way pure porn only made to make males hard. His universe is fetichism and sado-masochism with some bondage, not the usual content of this blog, but belongs anyway to pure scoptophilia in the way I see it. I wish he does not shoot only the "perfect body" models but I imagine he would say that they are beautiful or that he earns more money with such pin-up models than with more ordinary or diverse ones. A long journey until this dictatorship disappears or maybe it won't. His tumblr blog here. His site there.

Black Sheep - Nude self-portraits
































Another tumblr discovery without any info about the man who conducts this project of nude self-portraits. It's a welcome change since usually females are more inclined to produce such a self-nude iconography than males, this for historical and cultural reasons of course. And when males do it, it often lacks this introspective quality than one can find in women's approach. I'm not sure this so-called Black Sheep succeeds to reach a high level of introspective quality but visually it's not uninteresting. Moreover, here and there his sex is erected and it's not so common to be noted. It adds a lot to the pictures and I think male iconography is not rich enough of rigid penises. One nice contribution then. Note that his blog (here) is rather recent and may provide in a near future some surprises.

Kohana Neptune - Various

 




























Don't ask me who is Kohana Neptune. It seems she's from Moldavia and that she takes some self portraits (at least they are signed Neptune) whereas others are from photographers with various names such as Tiglush. It alsom seems she's a model for a long time now since some pictures shows her "at the end of the last century" (sic) and she seemed very young. Anyway, in her tumblr blog (here), there are several very nice pictures I found to fit perfectly in this blog. Hope you'll agree. Don't really know why. Something rough in these images that fascinates me. A strong influence of Helmut Newton and no surprise she posts several pictures from him on her blog.

Peter Franck - Hotel Rooms











Second post (first one here) from this German photographer, but looking at his site, I'm not sure he still does such pictures, and he seems more interested by places and installations. Sad cos', as you know, the body is my favorite subject and I can't find anything more interesting, moving and stimulating for the eyes, the brain (and sometimes more but it's not mandatory). His work is (or was) so singular and original, he could have digged it. Here some images to complete the previous post and maybe inspire some visitors who come here to glean some ideas. His site here (but don't expect to see anything that is similar to the ones above). I called this series Hotel Rooms cos' it is apparently issued from the same series than the previous post. I think I took the title somewhere but maybe I invented it. It doesn't matter anyway.

Chad Michael Ward - Various























This Amercian photographer's work lays somewhere between erotism, gothic, fantastic and ultraviolence (fake). If most of his work is beyond the scope of this blog and of my personal interest (both being tightly associated), here I selected images I liked among his vast collection, and that, I think, deserved to feature on a post. Not surprinsingly, he also does video clips for various bands and singers. He could do his own movie one day, some of the above images raising potential scenarios of rather thrilling horror films. His site here.
