Paradise

This image is from a shoot I did last week with one of my favorite photographers, Steve DeMent. Steve creates beautiful pinup, glamour, and commercial fashion images, and I’ve met him a few times at local burlesque shows. I was a little nervous before the shoot, since I hadn’t done one in awhile, and I was shooting with someone whose work I greatly admire, but I had a great time. Steve is professional, respectful, very easy to work with, and a genuinely nice, fun guy.

I’m extremely happy with the images we created, and I feel this one exemplifies something I’ve been seeking lately: appreciating beauty in things, without asking for more. Instead of explaining exactly what I mean by this, I’ll leave you with the image instead, and you can interpret it how you wish…

 

 

 

 

Vintage Spanking Postcards

In addition to discovering some interesting surreal, dark, and playful paintings at the Museum of Erotica in Barcelona, I also enjoyed viewing their collection of vintage erotic postcards. The description of the postcards said they’re from 1900 to the end of World War I, but unfortunately it didn’t give any details as to where each postcard came from specifically. There was a range of genres of erotic postcards, from glamour photos of single women showing only their breasts, to explicit ones portraying group sex and “sex toys,” to spanking scenes like these, which were some of my favorites:

The first postcard makes me imagine a sort of confessional/discipline scene, and the second seems to be a group public humiliation/spanking…what do you think?
