DAN SKINNER /photographer

Let's call this Bath Time. The photographer is Dan Skinner and the model is Dave Wilkinson. Of course I am fond of the black and white image.

MILITARY JUNK

Seems like everyone is putting their junk all over the net these days and the guys in the military are no exceptions.

INKEDKENNY/ photographer

So, here's this guy who apparently goes by the name inkedkenny (sometimes kinkedkenny). As far as I can find, he hails/hailed from Toronto, but is/will be off to do some traveling with his camera. Interesting stuff. It appears that he let his domain name lapse, so his website is down. But here is another site on photobucket with a gallery of his pictures.

MAY 2010 ERROR

Someone (anonymous) has informed me that I erroneously attributed a photo  to Hugo Fernandes back in May 2010. Unfortunately, anonymous did not tell me who the photographer was. Does anyone know? My apologies to both Mr. Fernandes and the photographer who really took the photo.

ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE/ photographer

How could I have waited so long to post work from one of the most iconic gay photographers ever, Robert Mapplethorpe? There are so many images to choose from, both controversial and not. Here are just a few that caught my eye, including a self-portrait. As I said, there are so many I may have to revisit his work another time.


I have recently been in touch with someone from a site called Artsy. Artsy is like an online art gallery, only more. According to their site: Artsy features the world’s leading galleries, museum collections, foundations, artist estates, art fairs, and benefit auctions, all in one place. Our growing database of 350,000 images of art, architecture, and design by 50,000 artists spans historical, modern, and contemporary works, and includes the largest online database of contemporary art. Artsy is used by art lovers, museum-goers, patrons, collectors, students, and educators to discover, learn about, and collect art. Artsy's Robert Mapplethorpe page provides visitors with Mapplethorpe's bio, over 250 of his works, exclusive articles, and up-to-date Mapplethorpe exhibition listings. The page also includes related artists and categories, allowing viewers to discover art beyond their Mapplethorpe page.

JASON DECAIRES TAYLOR/ Scupltor

 This is quite wonderful. A sculptor named Jason deCaires Taylor has created a work called the Silent Evolution. It is comprised of 400 life sized sculptures of men, women and children that were placed underwater near Cancun, Mexico for the Museum of Underwater Modern Art. The sculptures are transforming themselves into an artificial reef. He has several other works similarly displayed.
