Best of 2019 – NSFW Photography

Giulia Pacciardi · 3 months ago · Photography

NSFW (not safe for work) photographic projects, aka those that would be better to look away from prying eyes, have always been a highlight of our selection.
They are the ones that become part of the most read as soon as they are published and then remain there, on the highest steps of our faithful analysis tools.
These articles, however, despite the acronym we use to define them, do not only tell stories of nudity but rather tell delicate, extremely sincere and vulnerable relationships, ethereal and sensual projects.

Here you will find the 10 most read during the last year, but if you do not have any enough, we have a whole archive made especially for you.
Good reading!

NSFW dreamy images by Alessandro Casagrande

Femininity, intimacy and delicacy are all elements that make up the NSFW shots of the Italian photographer Alessandro Casagrande, an artist whose shots are surrounded by a nostalgic atmosphere.
The woman’s body is the protagonist of a photographic series that seems to be the result of an album of memories, the story of a love that is in tune with the emotions of the viewer, of those who know nothing but can still feel a lot.

Female bodies and nature in the shots by Anne Barlinckhoff

Anne Barlinckhoff is a photographer of Dutch origin who uses her camera to capture a sensual, free and erotic world where the protagonists are women, her favourite subjects.
In her shots the bodies tell stories that go beyond any form of prejudice, they touch, touch each other and come together in a mix of sensuality, delicacy and nature.

Truthness, Evelyn Bencicova’s NSFW images

Truthness, the photographic project of the Slovak artist Evelyn Bencicova, explores the portrait as a form of dialogue or monologue, as a means of direct and frank communication, but at the same time fragile and vulnerable.
This photographic series captures the complexity of our inner worlds by laying bare the emotions and the essence of its protagonists, women get rid of all that is superfluous, revealing themselves in all their splendid fragility.

Cinematographic NSFW style in Lou Escobar’s images

Lou Escobar is a French photographer and film-maker who creates beautiful images characterized by a strongly cinematographic style, almost all her shots seem to be taken from scenes of a Hollywood movie.
The women immortalized by Lou Escobar are at ease with their bodies and become icons of a kind of daring sexuality that conveys freedom and sensuality, if only through the gaze.

Søster Studio, the authentic beauty of the female body

The Søster Studio’s photographic project is all about the authenticity and empowerment of women.
All the images, taken by an exceptional team of stylist Kama Krystel, photographer Anne-Line Nygaard and brand founder Pernille Nadine, were taken on film and not retouched, to accentuate the models’ identity and allow them to explore their sensuality and diversity without fiction.

Carlota Guerrero and the naked beauty of women

Carlota Guerrero is a self-taught photographer whose photographs explore the concept of beauty without censorship.
Over the years, the style of her shots has proved to be perfect for high fashion editorials but for the realization of artistic performances that revolve around the woman’s body.
What has made her works recognizable and much loved is the way she portrays the body, there are no limits and barriers but only the delicate sensuality with which she describes them.
The women she portrays represent the freedom to show themselves and to show their bodies, not because they are forced to do so, but because they are free to do so.

Photographer Shannon Tomasik’s diary film

Shannon Tomasik is a photographer from Michigan who seems to take her photographs for a personal diary.
With her 35mm film camera she creates shots with a cinematic aesthetic, which she calls indie, with which she tells emotions, moments of life, the relationship with oneself, with others and with a space that is often empty and melancholy. 
Her images do not hide the need to urgently communicate personal stories in which it is easy to feel a bit protagonist.

Girls! Girls! Girls!, the NSFW shots by Francesca Jane Allen

Francesca Jane Allen, is a London based photographer who despite her young age has already shot for many fashion magazines and brands.
Her style, which we also find in the Girls! Girls! Girls! project, is sensual, fresh and feminine.
Francesca Jane’s women are independent and free from all taboos, capable of transmitting strength and at the same time fragility. Her NSFW images exalt lean and slender, curvy and sinuous, androgynous or hyper-feminine bodies with the same importance, making all women feel part of an aesthetic language that excludes no one.

The world behind a mirror, romantic NSFW shots by František Konopa

František Konopa is a young self-taught photographer from the Czech Republic who uses art to communicate the most real beauty, that of faces, their smiles and eyes, when they are alone and when they love.
One of his latest projects is a collection of NSFW black and white shots that speak of love and intimacy with a delicate sensuality.

Female portraits by Marat Safin

The female portraits of Marat Safin, a Russian photographer, convey a sense of calm and intimacy. 
Her protagonists are women, in the house, in the kitchen, lying on the bed, surrounded by nature, free in the tall grass, women looking in the car or immortalized in spontaneous poses. 
The warm light typical of his shots immediately makes the family atmosphere, giving us an air of home, of tranquility.

365typefaces, one typeface per day

365typefaces, one typeface per day

Emanuele D'Angelo · 1 month ago · Art

365typefaces is a special Instagram profile, at first glance it may seem trivial, but it is not.
Born in Rome in 1993, Andrea Biggio lives and works in Milan as a graphic designer and just over a year ago he created 365typefaces, an account created to promote and present contemporary and experimental typefaces, created by independent designers and digital foundries.

His page is now a real point of reference for all those designers looking for inspiration, looking for the right font to best realize their idea.
Founded with the aim of publishing one project a day, whether it’s a finished and finished font or one that’s still being worked on, until now 365Typefaces has collected a lot of fonts, becoming a digital archive perfectly updated on the latest trends in type design.

365typefaces also has big plans for the future, it would like to expand its community and become a brand partner of foundries and events related to the world of printing, but not only.
An ambitious project, which among other things gives the opportunity to many graphic designers to show the fonts they create and share them with everyone.
In December a 365TChallenge was also created, inviting designers to create an alphabet inspired by the shapes of sound.

A useful and inspiring project for many graphic designers, a way to share their work, through a simple Instagram profile.
An excellent showcase for designers, driven by the authentic nature of the page, always ask to be published to increase their visibility.

Fear Eats The Soul, Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Flags

Fear Eats The Soul, Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Flags

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

If there is an object of universal use and comprehensible to anyone in the world that is the flag. Since the time of the Crusades, flags have represented the belonging of a group of people to a country, but not only, to a belief, an ideal, a current of thought. Think, for example, of pirates, Italian lordships, political parties or the most popular rainbow flag of peace. 

Because of its deep meaning and its powerful symbolic force, Rirkrit Tiravanija, a New York artist born in Buenos Aires, has made the flag an inevitable object of his artistic research. 

One of the best known is completely white, presenting light, almost invisible, the silhouettes of the stars and stripes of the American flag, above them in cubital characters appears the inscription “Fear Eats The Soul“. The sentence is taken from the film Ali: Fear Eats the Soul by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, one of those films that forty years later still manages to be particularly relevant, dealing with themes linked to racism and class struggle. 

The same flag with the phrase in Italian appeared yesterday on the facade of the Church of San Paolo Converso in Milan, headquarters of the Fondazione Converso that will host the works of Rirkrit Tiravanija throughout the year, including six flags that will be waved in turn at the entrance. The first one is “La Paura Mangia L’Anima” (Fear Eats the Soul) and, unfortunately, it couldn’t be better suited to the current climate in the city (and throughout Northern Italy), which is forced to close schools and museums because of the Coronavirus.

Although it remains a white flag, do not mistake it for a gesture of surrender.

Malala, Lady Gaga and the other women Behind the Mac

Malala, Lady Gaga and the other women Behind the Mac

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

This year, to celebrate International Women’s Day, Apple released an all-female version of Behind The Mac

The 2018 campaign is renewed every year with short commercials that show both well-known personalities from show business and music, but also normal users, working behind the screen of a Mac. The interesting aspect of this campaign is that every country has the possibility to customize it, for example, a few days ago we talked about the commercial made by Apple Japan that instead of known faces used cartoon and anime scenes. 

But Behind the Mac can also change according to the occasion to celebrate, so in this spot, always busy working behind a computer, we see personalities ranging from Lady Gaga to Malala, from Greta Gerwig to Diane von Furstenberg. In the background? “***Flawless Feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie” by Beyoncé.

Cheyne Gallard, between superheroes and drag queens

Cheyne Gallard, between superheroes and drag queens

Emanuele D'Angelo · 1 month ago · Art

Cheyne Gallard is a famous illustrator born in beautiful Honolulu. Like almost every colleague, from an early age, he loved to draw and scribble whatever paper was in front of him.
As a child, he enjoyed watching cartoons and drawing them on paper on Saturdays. We can undoubtedly say that his style is clear from the beginning, you have never sought inspiration from other currents because he has always been dedicated to comics.

Self-taught, his life changed after picking up a copy of Stan Lee’sHow to Draw the Marvel Way“. Even today, his main inspiration continues to be comic book king Jack Kirby and some modern illustrators like Dave Gibbons and Joe Quinones.

Cheyne’s works are absolutely a continuation of pop art, in which he combines his love for ferocious women and Golden Age comics. Flamboyant, full of colors and details, his works are very similar to the comics of the most famous Marvel superheroes.

His latest work is dedicated to one of his favorite series, America’s Next Drag Queen. It’s an American reality show based on a competition between drag queens. The presenter of the show is RuPaul, who is also a judge and mentor. The contestants must show their skills as entertainers and style by competing in various competitions.
Since the sixth season, Cheyne Gallard has started to dedicate comics to the strongest competitors.
He decided to combine his love for drag queens with the vintage and retro comic book look and thus my unique mix was born.
