    The issue VII of VORN which celebrated ten years of existence is finally out and my work is gloriously inundating its pages. I am thrilled with the results ; the stock is gorgeous and the printing quality so rich - I love how dense and sharp the blacks turned out.

    I am extremely thankful to Joachim Baldauf and Uta Grosenick for offering me such expanse to present my work.

    In Berlin, you will find the magazine at Do You Read Me?

    Sissle Honore Ceci N’est Pas Une Erection 1994

The taboo on the depiction of an erect penis, is still matter of legal contention, and remained largely unchallenged. Even art schools, ‘a haven for the outrageous and confrontational’ (Cooper, 1996, p236) are not immune. An image on the theme of sexual desire by Sissle Honore, which included a shot of an erect penis, was banned by the director of Take That! the photographic show put on by students, from the University of Westminster. A witty response to this and inspired by Rene Magritte’s ‘Ceci n’est Pas Une Pipe’  Honore produced the image ‘Ceci n’est Pas Une erection’ 1994. When this image depicting a close up of a distinctly feminine hand reaching over to fondle an erect penis, appeared in the catalogue advertising the degree exhibition, ‘a black square masked out the erect penis, thus heighten the sensational dimension of the image’ (Cooper, 1996, p237).

    While I haven’t been too interested in her work (save for some landscapes and music photography) her early treatment of the male nude is really profound. She was able to switch easily between the essence of a man’s true self and the sensuality that is so difficult to capture when dealing with the subject.

    Sam Taylor-Johnson* Soliloquy VIII

Confession time? I’m actually intrigued with the idea of Sam Taylor-Johnson directing the 50 shades movie because she has such an unflinching and honest eye when it comes to sexuality.

*Formally Sam Taylor-Wood, I only just found out she changed her name.

Now while this isn’t technically a nude, I think it falls under the umbrella of the uncharacteristic, sexual, sensual, vulnerable treatment of a male form.
