Shay Maria/Victoria Taylor

Posted in Women with tags , , on May 22, 2011 by michaelchernoff

So it has been a while since I posted some erotic content on the blog. I was staying away from these things due to other interests and trying to balance out the meaning of my wordpress. I have gotten too much viewing I think from horny needs of seeing nudes posted here. However I couldn’t help myself with two new models I found tonight named Shay Maria and Victoria Taylor. I don’t even know who their photographers are for the most part since they seem either anonymous or have small bios. Either way I am just here for the beauty of their bodies and talents and not the camera controllers.

Shay Maria is an up and coming dancer who also is trying her hand with acting and modeling. A classy lady she won’t do full nudes and instead does tease poses with little clothing mostly. I prefer this since her allure is more than just good looks and curves. She seems to have an innate expressiveness for the camera and is able to fit the roles of the backdrops and clothes she is sporting for each picture. I want to see more photos with her and she’s only 20 so she has a long way to go.

Victoria Taylor is 27 and a very different body type from Maria. I love her confident poses and she really knows how to bend her body in comparison to Shay Maria who usually does very erect and straight forward poses. But this may have more to do with the direction of the photographer than the models. Victoria has 3 years of experience but unfortunately is not shooting at this time? No idea why. In any case I will keep these ladies in mind  for any future art undertakings that I need the assistance of the commercial photo industry.

Foreign Youtube Performances

Last week and tonight two non-American youtube videos have caught my attention. The one above is a video of America’s Got Talent via Ukraine. The performing artist is named Kseniya Simonova and her medium is drawing with sand on a light box. The illumination and fluidity of the sand creates a time flow that couples with the progression of history she illustrates about Ukraine during WWII. Everyone has tried drawing in sand and dirt but I’ve never seen such control as she does in this video. In video we are taught to practice technique even if we do not produce anything usable. I imagine she must have spent hours upon days and months practicing her timing and accuracy with sand. The whole performance is like dancing with fingers and drawing bound together. The monochrome color of sand, shadow, and line weight make the video seem like an old ink brush painting. And Ms. Kseniya Simonova is pretty to boot. Cheers to her for winning this competition and celebrating a seemingly primitive art form whose qualities may have limitless possibilities for drawing and video.

The other two videos are of a Colombian woman giving birth to a baby in a pool of water guided by her husband and midwife. At first I thought the video was some strange beginning for bondage pornography. I had previously been searching videos for Asa Akira on youtube and found the video in the side links. The video quality is poor and amateur but the event seemed almost effortless and mystifying. I believe in Comobia it is a choice for some families to perform this ritual which appears purifying and more relieving for the mother. The event was like a strange performance mix between Mike Kelly and Yoko Ono due to its shabby setting and focus upon a female body. The videos together are around fifteen to twenty minutes and they don’t look edited. If this were a straight shoot her birth was short and the baby came of her womb underwater. Makes me think about the possibilities of a Nirvana album cover differently. The entire ritual really impressed me and I am looking for more ritualistic and tribal qualities in my work.

Both are great videos and should be studied its just very hard to find this kind of great stuff other you tube servers.

The New Advent of Religous Erotica

Posted in Comedy, Photography, website, Women with tags , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2010 by michaelchernoff

OF COURSE… I was browsing /b/ when I found this site and it is a real red alert. I had illusions that this was some sort of feminist art internet collection…but it’s just European erotic nudes. It’s the time of the female Jesus…Regina? I don’t know what her name would be in this case.

I found the site since the web address since it’s plastered on all the pictures. They present a real fixation for me and probably for many men. It puts into the air the pleasure of seeing suffering on a woman being violated and tortured. It’s undeniable when you place with the story Christ. So then what does this mean for our fantasies? Is this just another scenario for fantasies or is it going against the Holiness of the scene? These women aren’t being groped or fondled only their bodies are extenuated. The photos seem to be for a righteous exploration since some of the selections have bad photoshop painted pixels for creating goofy halos. Yet you have to pay when logging on…a cause for art or a cause for an art for fapping? I chuckled at its attempt for porn. I haven’t made a post like this for a while and had distanced myself from posting this kind of content less for more refined research. But the black and white shots are really exciting.

I suppose there is enough naiveté here for me to approve this venture.

Here is the link to the site…http://www.passionofagoddess.com/

Maybe there are more religious pictures like this out there? I’d really like to see the videos for this site too. But I’m not paying ten Euro.

Patrick Demarchelier

Posted in Artist, Image Discovery!, Photography, Women with tags , , , , , on February 15, 2010 by michaelchernoff

I was flipping through Vogue…something new for me since I think most fashion magazine photography is boring. Besides Raymond Meier, I looked at Patrick Demarchelier work online after holding an issue. Like all the vogue photographers the women are tall and lean but Patrick gives them spunk that I appreciate. He is accomplished in both magazine lay outs and fine portraiture. He lies a lot in monochromatic exposures too.He makes these lucid women very tough while still retaining a models femininity. The images I saw seem calm and not needing to exert much energy to be in your face. He has definitely made my day.

Phsique

Posted in Women with tags , , on January 30, 2010 by michaelchernoff

After comparing a lot of ideal bodies in image making I wonder why there are not many representations of muscular female physique? Is it ugly or beautiful? Either labels don’t fit this…there are some male body builders that repulse women because their bodies seem beyond freakish. Muscular women has more to with gender roles I think. Progressively women just seem to be portrayed thinner and thinner and it largely is produced from media that performs for a male dominate world. Maybe men don’t want to think of women as strong or able.But in terms of genetics it is regarded that men are more endowed with physical potential. Seeing soft flesh instead of chiseled of abdomens suggest naturalism for viewers.

Heroines however in a lot of pulp and punk fiction are pretty ripped. Ranging from Linda Hamilton as Sarah Conner to Wonderwoman and Battle Angel Alita. And the feminity of these women is not decreased by their muscles but maybe boosted. Skinny women are usually as interesting as their volume. It’s not like most people are looking for Übermensch individuals and clutch their beyond physique. I suppose freakishness for women is a small margin.

Personally I don’t see many buff women but see muscles in action in a still frame is great. I’d like some time to photograph women weight training and capturing their bodies at work. The only thing is I hate most interiors of gym space.

More Guilty Pleasure Pics

Posted in Photography, Women with tags , on January 15, 2010 by michaelchernoff

These are more nameless women that have great postures. I’m not going to say much more about them other than they are great.

This pose reminds me a lot of the imagery in One Piece I am reviewing.

The oddity of Latex Photography

Posted in Artist, Photography, Women with tags , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2010 by michaelchernoff

After catching glimpses of Marie-Claude Bourbonnaise and listening to NIN’s Ghost album latex work I decided to devote some time this afternoon to researching latex photography. What I found  out about the endeavour is a typical and alluring. Most of the searches I did of latex lead to websites mostly devoted to porn. Latex is a huge icon for Bondage sex imagery. What makes it seductive is that suffocates the body with tension. A shiny second skin is added and acts similarly to a sex muzzle for the body. Unfortunately once again this genre is placed upon female bodies…and it just seems to support the idea of female abuse and exploitation in pornography. But I did notice there are women latex photographers along with the men.

It’s inescapable for latex to escape the sphere of fetish in the kingdom of adult entertainment. But Latex has ground in fashion also. Many European designers are behind the outfits in the media and some clothing items are very elaborate. But how is latex marketable if you don’t live in the matrix? It’s hard to stay warm in this stuff so I guess LA is one of the few places it can be utilized…ie porn again. So I suppose latex clothing doesn’t have much choice in the matter of who wants the stuff with low consumer options.

Bianca Beauchamp is currently one of the most popular latex model based in NYC. She certainly has the body to back it up. A photographer of hers is Martin Perrault a French citizen who does mostly latex photos. Some of the photos above were done by him. Here are 2 more images by Martin.

The most damning thing about latex is that even thought it is erotic it’s unfair. The pool for popular latex exploration seems small. A majority of the backgrounds are fictionalized to a point that they are obviously impractical. If latex models are placed in natural or urban settings unmanipulated then it can’t be hypersensitive. If so then get ready for most cyber punk entertainment which borders on erotica itself. I think if people like Martin Perrault pursue latex in a similar approach the trends may change. Instead of latex bounding it could be rest upon or hang from bodies. It’s not suffocation that creates eroticism but the effect of tension latex shows by revealing all the curves a woman has.

Also the black haired model below and at the top is Rubber Doll a gem in the latex porn industry. Not sure if Martin is her usual photographer.
