Fetish photography

September 3, 2015

Is it porn or is it art? How to shoot very erotic and sexual fetish and not make it vulgar and pornographic?  Is it even possible? I guess it depends on the viewer in the end. Some people will see porn in totally innocent pictures, others will praise it as a highest form of art. Especially if photographs are taken by famous and fashionable photographer.


I have recently visited photo exhibition featuring  Robert Mapplethorpe's works. He was definitely in to fetish. And he did not tried to hide that, which i highly respect. The photographs are regarded as art, but what exactly makes them so? Is it the novelty or shock factor? Or the fact that photographer is dead already? I believe it was quite a novelty those 30 years back, but now there are plenty of other photographers (and other random people) shooting fetish. Cross dressing, S&M, bondage... you name it. And in this "internet" world it is hardly shocking anymore.  Or is it?


Anyway, i had an excellent opportunity to try and shoot some artistic fetish. I can tell you, it is difficult. Seriously. But very exiting. I saw a person in front of me in their most true and vulnerable self. And I have tried my hardest to capture this vulnerability, this inner peace and freedom, this beauty. 


I really hope i managed it, at least some. But it is for you, my viewers, to decide.

 

In the meantime, i want to thank my model Gottero. You were wonderful!
