ancient keys.

Toronto. October 12th, 2017.
Having few places to post my more overtly nude work, under the circumstances, I suppose I could reacquaint myself with ye olde "implied nude."

Infer some genitals, why don't you?

here's an old photo I took about ten years ago.

I've got this project over on the tumblz where I post photos from ten years ago, and write what I can remember about that time in my life.

Turns out I can only remember bummer crud.

I ended up taking all of my content off of dA when I found that I didn't seem to have any audience there for my photography that wasn't sexualizing and objectifying my friends and clients. I later discovered that many of my photos had been stolen from my dA gallery, and posted on porn sites and porn blogs. (Another story for another day).

A friend of mine who still posts on deviantART was doing that tiresome thing where someone with no programming ability demands that whoever might be listening, go out and create some alternative to dA that hearkened back to its glory days.

I commented that one of many failings of dA, especially for art nude photographers, is that their moderation is not restrictive enough, while social media alternatives of late are very restrictive.

This "describe your image" thing is an interesting exercise in really reflecting on what the subject of your photo is. And when it turns out to not be doing much other than being a pretty photo, I start to second-guess whether it's really all that good a photo anyhow...

and you dared.

I'm having a crap week, so I'm posting from the archives today.
Sometimes, you have to eat this frustration at knowing you could do something better, but never having the opportunity to try again.

There's nothing wrong with the vanity of wanting people to see your art.

It's normal and natural.

I've never liked the idea that you should be so "pure" that you'd keep doing art even if nobody was around. Of course you wouldn't.

Art is meant to be shared.

@noahbradley I had this realisation the other day when I saw a musician talking about being a 'performer', as in part of their personality, an impulse. We don't judge that in musicians. Why should I feel ashamed that I want people to see my art? Art is performance. I feel annoyed sometimes when people say you should draw what you enjoy, as if to want people to see it & react is a personality flaw.

Posted something from the archives on instagram, to staunch the endless hemorrhage of followers that happens when you don't post often enough
(hashtag garbageapp).
You can have it too.

Anyone got an instance they recommend for NOT photography talk? I’m reluctant to get shit/text posty up in here, since no one else does.

as a bonus, when you learn a song on the piano you also learn a little dance with your fingers

The character of a nude portrait is changed by whether or not eye contact is made. The intimacy immediately draws in the viewer, but it also makes the viewer complicit in the photo. I'm never sure if I want to do that with my work.

cumming backwards into my body and feeling the power of Jizz running through my veins

The announcement bot and I seem to be on the same posting schedule.

Working with a black fabric background wasn't as much fun as i hoped. Too much light means you see too much of it, and not enough light means everything just feels very dark. So, you work with it however you can...

speaking of unsubtle blasts from a box fan (scoot back in time two weeks, why don't you)... I'm very pleased with the witchy vibes in this set of photos.
