Creepy And Dark Photography Of Nona Limmen, Covered With Goth, Fantasy And Metamorphosis

“Ordinary life does not interest me,” Amsterdam-based photographer Nona Limmen says. She prefers to operate beyond reality, in liminal spaces like memories, dreams, and fantasies.

These are “alike in that they are beyond our grasp,” she explains. “It’s the beauty of the unattainable, the quality of the miraculous.” In her photographs, they all come together to create images that are alluring.

This particular piece is called “Metamorphosis“ comes with its own story that starts, “She murmured a few words in an old, ancient tongue that only she and the animals understood. The forest critters answered. Like a moth to a flame serpents of all kinds gathered around her, caressing her pale body with their scaly coal coloured skin.”

Amazing Black and White Photographs Capture Scenes From Venice Beach In The 1970s And ’80s

Sun-bleached babes, roller skates, cruisers, Vans, campers, corduroy OP shorts… The smell of the ocean, the feel of sand on your feet and the burning of incense bring back the memories of a golden era in Venice Beach.

In 1978, photographer Bill Aron and his family moved to California where he didn’t want to go. His wife had landed a job as a professor here, but he was just getting established as a photographer in New York. So his wife told him that he could pick what neighborhood they would live in, and he chose Venice, which was still affordable back then.

“On weekends, my dad would take his camera to the boardwalk and photograph the scene, which in fact had just become a scene,” Hillel Aron said about his dad. “Thanks to a newly installed bike path, the rise of disco music and the invention of the polyurethane wheel, which made rollerskating on the street viable.”

“I was born in the summer of 1979,” he added, “and my dad used to push me along in a stroller and photograph everyone hanging out there — the rollerskaters, the body builders, the sunbathers, the sidewalk vendors, the street performers, the daredevils, the musicians, the dope smokers, the hippies, the derelicts. My dad says they all knew me as a baby — except they all pronounced my name wrong.”

The Photographer That Is Constantly Silenced And Censored By Instagram

Who decides what is appropriate and inappropriate? In our modern world, we face several contradictions and double standards in terms of what we believe and deem to be acceptable. We boast the fact that we are the most open society regarding sexuality, yet we continue to have underlying ideas that prove our claims to be wrong.

We talk about sex, yet the sight of a naked body is shocking to us. This last statement is almost always in regards to the male figure. Recently, Instagram removed the account of choreographer and photographer AdeY for the third time. What sort of controversial or explicit image did this artist upload? Well it featured three male models, but not in a sexualized or even explicit manner.

AdeY’s work captures those little moments of social oppression, humour, isolation, anxiety and depression. It recognises that we not only change in relationship to our environment but that our environment adapts to what we become.

The images depict imbalances evident in contemporary society today by directly addressing issues of gender, normative behaviour and how society forces us to choose one direction or path. The subjects show our vulnerability, loneliness, strengths and expectations whilst highlighting the correlation between body and space.

Stunning Photos Of The Victorian People-Watching At The Beach

Today, our time machine is going for a pit-stop on a sunny, Victorian Era beach in Atlantic City, where the ponies are aplenty, and the bathing costumes make the women look like layer cakes. Sure, contemporary eyes may see a bunch of prudes, but for folks in the 1800s, showing off your bloomers at the beach was quite a statement, especially in the throes of Women’s Suffrage. So pick up your parasol for some antiquated people watching…

NSFW “French Postcards” That Will Show You How People Got Nudes Way Before The Internet

Our generation might prefer nudes, but these photographs were so much more artistic.

Erotic images have always been a lucrative business. Sex sells, and that is the reason behind the multi-million dollar empire that is Playboy Enterprise. The magazine helped revolutionize sexuality in the 1950’s, and to this day, it’s still a popular publication all over the world.

The magazine then announced it would stop publishing nude pictures in 2015, however a year after the first nude-free issue came out, the decision was reversed. Throughout history, there has always been some form of nude images for people to enjoy and look at. For instance, Francisco de Goya painted “The Nude Maja,” Pablo Picasso, the “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,” and Playboy blazed the trail for nudie mags, but before this magazine was distributed around the world, people would rely on “French postcards.”

Don’t let the word “postcard” trick you into believing that these erotic photographs printed on cardboard weren’t sexy. On the contrary, French postcards were graphic and held a high artistic standard that launched the careers of many photographers and models. Although not all of them were French, the postcards were mainly produced there and the word “French” made them sound more sophisticated. During the 20th century, photographers would make a decent amount of money photographing women in the nude or posing suggestively. In fact, you could hire one of these photographers (they weren’t cheap, though) to do a couple’s or solo photo shoot to give as a gift. Imagine what these photographers would think about the filtered nudes people send these days.

Bold Nudes That Show How Our Bodies Are All We Have In The End

Ignacio Navarro is a Chilean photographer whose artistic inspiration is all about conservation. Featuring bold nudes that force viewers to witness devastation we’d usually turn away from, we’re also left with confronting our inner prudishness to also avoid the human body in it’s natural form.

His series Anima Terrae explores both the selfish decadence that has led to wildlife and ecosystems being destroyed over time, to the constant shame pointed towards anyone who chooses to go without the need for artifice and superficiality.

As a culture and society we are completely contradictory. We claim to love open spaces full of trees and fresh air, yet these are continuously erased from sight to make way for urban settings. We say the human body is perfect as it is, yet we shy away from any notion of nudity that is free from shame and guilt.

NSFW.
