Dragon Lady

Dragon Lady 1

It had been a few years since I’d photographed the talented Friskey Brown and she spends much of her time these days behind the camera providing fantastic special effects make up. When she told me her idea for the Dragon Lady shoot I was all over it because I knew it’d give me a little bit of opportunity to experiment with something new; which is rare these past couple of years.

The photos that had the most impact for me were certainly her take on shadow play. It took some fiddling and trial and error but the results are most certainly a little creepy and erotic in a very non-explicit fashion. Without breaking the spell with my waffling I just wanted to say that what I enjoy most is getting the viewer’s imagination to do most of the work. In an age where everything is literally on the plate for all to see, it’s nice to occasionally hang back in the shadows and remember a time when the eroticism was all in the suggestiveness of the subject.

    It looks cool, I agree that the suggestion is more erotic than just thrusting everything all out the brain is our biggest sex organ after all
