No eye contact

MIA90MMTRIX005Web5 STAROddly, posting on the 29th February seems right after looking at the date of my last post (December 31st).  I’ll try harder to post more regularly.

I spent a few hours in the company of Mia Liberum recently, a model who combines art nude with anonymity.  I quite like the anonymity, it’s a way of both de- eroticising nude photography and eroticising it.  Without the eye contact you (as a viewer) don’t get the full story, but can fill in the gaps how you want to.

I think that subject matter suits the innate softness of shooting wide open and loose, whether it’s 35mm film or roll film.  Missed plenty however, and surprisingly couldn’t find many colour images I liked.

NSFW warning again I’m afraid- scroll down at your peril.

Back overseas soon, so I’ll have to use that damn digital camera again to post regularly.
