Erotic photography is a style of art photography of an erotic , sexually suggestive or sexually provocative nature. After the s erotic photography began to be less commonly referred to as such, and to be increasingly described as glamour photography. Erotic photography generally produces a composed image of a subject in a still position. Though the subjects of erotic photography are usually completely or mostly unclothed , that is not a requirement.
Megan Eagles likes to photograph her beautiful girlfriends naked, seeks inspiration from '70s softcore porn, and publishes her pics in punky 'zines instead of glossy coffee table books. That's right, this year-old Londoner is pretty much a total badass. Maxim chatted via email with Eagles about her striking photography and why feminist erotica should always stay sexy. Erotica shot from the female gaze. I am very inspired by s softcore and I wanted to reimagine it from a female perspective. I tend to shoot friends instead of models, I never Photoshop my subjects and I love tan lines, body hair and women confident in their sexuality. I feel there is a new puritanical drive in society at the moment, telling women you can be feminist or sexual but never the two at the same time.
The joint show, Human Relations , was organised by Sascha Bailey at Imitate Modern and brought the erotic photography of Mairi-Luise Tabbakh to the public view for the first time. Other than that, information on the elusive Mairi-Luise Tabbakh is hard to come by, leaving just her mostly erotic photography for us to view and digest. The highly stylised imagery certainly links her to the classic erotic photography of Helmut Newton and the fashion work of David Bailey, with a largely black and white portfolio of seductive, erotic black and white photography. The erotic photography of Mairi-Luise Tabbakh comes at us with a certain arty glamour, candid black and white photographs of young beautiful people. The imagery certainly makes reference to classic erotic photography, never veering into pornography or the tasteless , but combines it with a feeling of being very modern, belonging to the world of people who have embraced social media.
