Polaroids

Posted in Family, Found Items, Photography with tags , , , , , on November 11, 2011 by michaelchernoff

In my previous post I found a photograph at the rummage sale at the First Methodist Church in Delmar NY. Another neat item was a Polaroid Flashgun with all the booklets and box included. I got the equipment simply because finding old photo and video equipment is a mini hobby of mine and stuff like this is finite so there’s no telling if demand will grow. After taking the item home and reviewing it’s contents I found a suprise inside.

Polaroids of strangers…dated December 1965. I guess the prints were forgotten and left in the box carelessly. Judging by the weather and architecture I could imagine the home being in Delmar or somewhere in the Northeast. It’s a modest lower middle class home and the prints seem forced or time catalysts. I imagine this man and his companion were waiting for something to happen and were just fooling around with the camera. There seems to be no purpose for this picture except that it is made. Suprisingly I think the details could pass for being from the last decade let alone 50 years. But then there was another photo that was even more unexpected…and maybe racey for these people.

 

 

 

A woman…middle aged…in a bed…in her underwear…in a private room…which looks identical to the decor of people I knew over the age 0f 65. 65…why that number too?

Anyway I figure the woman’s husband snapped this…I guess new technology demands some erotic exploitation. The woman in this photo maybe dead or very frail and weathered. There’s something abound the orange blanket and the lamp that makes me feel fuzzy and warm with nostalgia of the smell of my grandfathers former home. This picture reads as a reflection on the old times of the senior citizens I met as a child. This was modern living for them and they lie around in underwear and let photos capture them exposed in a setting I consider tacky and cozy. It’s like a pin up for old fashioned interior design. Based on the next photo I found I’m guessing the woman is on vacation in Florida.

If the person who owned these pictures wants them back lets negotiate a price since the content is above average. If not I’ll cherish the pictures…in a platonic way for the bedroom shot. I think I’ll keep looking for photos left behind in time and see if I learn anything.

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.

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.

Silk Screen Project on the Horizon

Posted in Comedy, Print, Projects with tags , , , on January 10, 2010 by michaelchernoff

So I had this idea for a project that is basically the most material consumer positive project I have in mind. I know strange wording but this thing is stranger. On the internet are occurences of anonymous surfers taking JPEGS themselves or copying others and putting in contemporary internet lingo or humor. I became captivated by this when my friend John Gill began flooding my facebook with them. Example.

So it is really contemporary internet trash art. Yet many people ages 17-30 love this crap. My upcoming idea is to do a similar style of comedy by using famous modern male painters who are well known and have catchy names, you know which ones. I will produce line drawings and scan them in as black and white images in photo shop. I will place questions of my own stylings but still in borrowed context of the Bro Kulture that is in the internet. Blah blah silk screens will be made from the digital portion.

I don’t want to give away too much since this idea is so dumb that many people could do it as well a I could. So stay tuned for further details and progress in the future.

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.
