Anonymous: lets put two white dudes on a white background doing stuff naked, lets even throw some sex in there to make it defiant. its too plain, put a black Colombian dude, put a trans girl/man. at least make a standing through your editing. plain art is still art nonetheless so congratulations on getting people to satisfy your little phase I guess
You sound full of hate. However, I have been waiting a message like this for a long time. Since in tumblr, racism and sexism are a huge deal. I’d like to say it’s a huge deal for everybody, but sadly it isn’t. I’ve always wanted to diversify the men or women that I photograph. But I can only work with the people I have near me. I’ve never met a transexual person. I have lots of friends that are black. Any of them are colombian. In my friend list on Facebook, for example, the 0.1% of my “friends” are black colombian guys. I’ve already talked with one of them to make a photography project. I don’t usually go out to places where I can meet new people. I spend lots of time at my university, but still, the people I get to meet there, wouldn’t let me take them photos. So Facebook is the tool i use to know new potential models. You’ll see, it’s really dificult. The process to find new models, it’s always long and frustrating. I don’t have resources to pay models, or to do huge art projects. So I agree in part with you, the result it’s very “plain”. But it isn’t a phase, art its the only thing that keeps me alive. Even if I come here and publish my work, it doesn’t mean I do it for recognition. I do it because when i’m taking photos, it makes me feel alive.
I find very disrespectful that "getting people to satisfy your little phase". But I have to thank you for coming here and say what you needed to say. It’s actually really helpful for the process i’m going through, to know how other people see my work.
The Porn Art Movement (Movimento de Arte Pornô) was a transgressive Brazilian avant-garde movement that started in 1980 and ended in 1982. The movement took place under a military dictatorship and pioneered the use of pornography both as a form of political resistance and as an innovative art médium.
