Gordon Denman. From Love Sex.

I was impressed by the unadorned eroticism of this series (unfortunately the blog that hosted it has been deleted) and looked to see what other work the photographer has done, thinking I might find some more compelling and humane erotica. He specializes in fetish photography, including a book called Pissy Pussy Girls.

Oh well.

René Groebli. From The Eye of Love. France 1953.

.

"René Groebli married in October 1951, but had to return to work just a few days after the wedding. The photographer and his wife Rita were finally able to take their honeymoon in 1953, and they traveled to France, where he created images of poetic beauty. The Eye of Love reveals the photographer’s loving and tender view of his wife, a gaze of desire and admiration. In this declaration of love, René Groebli created a timeless work."

René Groebli on his work: “I tried to convey the typical atmosphere of French hotel rooms. There were so many impressions: the poor-looking furniture in a cheap hotel, the ‘Amors’ embroidered on the curtains. And I was in love with the girl, the girl who is my wife. I think a series of photographs should be compared with a novel or even a poem rather than a painting: let us tell something!”
(from Le Journal de la Photographie)

More images from The Eye of Love can be seen here.

Harry Gruyaert. Morocco. Essaouira. Ramparts & fortified walls of the city. 1976.

.

His Morocco series has a remarkable consistency to it, one that amounts to a thematic assertion on his part. His Morocco is a fractured place, a patchwork composition of colored walls, dusty roads, and an array of fabrics, corners, and shadows that obscure the camera's endeavors to enlighten.

Virtually every figure who appears in this patchwork is also obscured; either their faces are turned away, or some object blocks them from view, or a niqab covers their features.

Harry Gruyaert. Morocco. Meknes. Souk. Bowl of marinated lemons used in traditional cooking. 1981.

Under Gruyaert's gaze, Morocco becomes a city populated by people who are misplaced, or perhaps a city full of people trying to keep out of view.

Abandoned planes are a common site at airports in Africa. At Goma Airport, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, planes left due to wars and volcanic eruptions over the past two decades have become a playground for street children, some of whom sell the parts which are made into stoves and other items to be sold on the streets of Goma.
