Jesus Llaria - Polaroids

This is maybe the most scoptophilian post since this blog has been created. First because this photographer (I feel guilty not to have discovered him previously), is actually rather obsessed by the pictures of attitudes and body parts that are supposed to be seen only by those we are in intimacy with. The pleasure to see what is not supposed to be seen is not stranger to scoptophilia, it is even in the psychiatric definition. Second because polaroids are not considered noble and so, we are here in a sort of unarty definition of photography, an important part of this blog's option. Third because I like it and it's enough for me. Can't say I know anything about this guy. He seems to be in his 50s and from Spain but it's only a deduction from what I saw here and there. Here his flickr gallery of polaroids. But it's only a small part of his work. More on this blog for sure in a near future.

MyExploring - Various self-portraits

This is a strong aspiration these days: to show oneself in a totally shameless way (not only be nude but also in sexual activity) without losing anonymity, an oxymoron behavior actually but a true need for some (I count myself in also I didn't take the plunge, cos' of the risks linked to my everyday job, not for familiar reasons). Here, an example of someone trying to compose with this difficult equation. I feel that those who know her would easily recognize her on some of the pictures but she may think that the risk is not so high, although in most cliches, she hides (blurs) her face. You may wonder whether the quality of these pictures justifies they are given a post in this blog. I think they deserve it. I selected my fave ones and encourage you to explore MyExploring tumblr blog and notably the #myexploring part of it (here). She helps to introduce the notion of sensuality for bodies that hitherto are still too often constrained to some "special" categories in the porno world and not in the everyday life.

Kurt Krueger - Various

Some may find this sexist, misogynistic (or is it misogynous?), obscene, vulgar and anything negative you want but personally I find it funny and audacious. This American photographer is doing a singular and idiosyncrasic work that deserves to be offered to all scoptophilians visiting this blog. Moreover the models seem to have quite a fun in shooting these pictures. I can't really say I understand the semantic behind it, and after all maybe there's none, maybe they're just mental fantasies, weird dreams of a disturbed male obsessed pervert (this is a quality under my keyboard). Anyway, you can find more (I selected my faves) on his deviantArt gallery here

Susan Silas - Love in the ruins; sex over 50

What a great and terrible title. As stated in some ebio, Susan Silas "was born in the US in 1953 to Jewish-Hungarian Holocaust survivors". Her work covers a long timespan and the best is to explore it on her site here.  This series is of course very interesting although it could have been stronger in realisation. Not much is shown here, not in terms of anatomy (everyone can see much more on hundreds porn sites with mature categories) but about what it reveals on sex after 50. Even the ruins promises are not really illustrated. But I can't help to think that this series has to be on Scoptophilia. Now it's as this blog possessed it's own independant existence, using me as a manual slave to obey its choices. Someday there'll be no comments. Not sure it wouldn't be better anyway, nobody needs my little insignifiant wordy light to know whether he likes or not what (s)he sees.
