Matt Offield - Porcelain

Matt Offield can be considered to belong to the explicit erotic school, meaning that it's harder than vanilla but not porn. It's crude and manages to make of natural and even trivial posture of female models sources of visual excitation. It's a really welcome tendancy after too much decades of fake images full of sophistication and irreality. Nothing more erotic than women assuming what they are in their everyday life tasks. Notably in bathroom and toilets, the places this series deals with. Called "Porcelain", the photographer (no bio details about him) states that it's about "Bathrooms, watersports, toilets (human and otherwise), thingies…". Not much explanation but who needs it? There's not hidden messages here, only the scoptophilian pleasure and it's enough to deserve a post on this eponymous blog. A site about him here

Melanie King - Model and photographer

Melanie King is an American model (shooting notably for Eric Kroll and Georges Pitts, who died 1 year ago and about whom we had made no less than 6 posts on this blog (here)) and photographer, usually working in black and white and who likes to take pictures with the photographers she works with (you will recognize the two above names on the selection of images I've done). Her iconography is very interesting because her erotic postures are strangely contradicted by a sort of the mechanical attitude she adopts and a serious and even severe face expression. No sensuality here, no attempt to create a feigned sexy climax. The nudity is desincarnated. Note that she also takes pictures of unknown people or other artists, providing a collection of contemporary US lives. You can see more from her here
