Erotica?

July 14th, 2007

Summ(ero)tica+small+flyer Erotica? I don’t think my work fits into the category of “erotica” but I’m not a big fan of categories anyway. I often find myself included in group shows that emphasize the erotic. So I end up being the most “conservative” photographer in the show. I don’t have a problem with that. It’s a change from being the most “erotic” artist in a group show when I’m the only one showing figure photography.

Anyway, I keep getting asked to participate in these group shows like the one coming up in Detroit in a couple weeks. Sometimes I hesitate a bit. When I was invited to join this group the name of the organization gave me pause. But I saw that there are a lot of very fine photographers in the Midwest Society of Erotic Photographers, so I went ahead and let them add me to the membership. I do make my photos with the idea of having them be seen, and this provides just one more venue for that to happen. It’s just that the erotic is not something I’m particularly interested in as far as my photography is concerned. Sensual, yes. Beautiful, I hope so. But erotic, not so much. So I guess I’m just a change of pace when I’m in a show like this one.

So, that’s the flyer for the show that’s coming up in Detroit. I do like that photo, and it does seem to be erotic. The photos I’ll be showing there are not erotic, at least as far as I’m concerned. But they do have beautiful nude models in them. I guess that’s all it takes to be erotic for some folks. And that’s fine with me.

I’ll be there at the opening with my wife and I’d love to meet any of my blog readers who may be in the Detroit area. So I hope to see you there on July 28th.
