PLAYBOY`S FIRST NON-NUDE ISSUE

since 1972

February 7, 2016

1160745 (1)

Playboy released their first non-nude magazine since 1972 this week, following an announcement in last October . The cover of March’s Playboy featuring Sarah McDaniel, an Instagram model, is a homage to social media with its Snapchat-themed, selfie-style photograph. Holding her arm out of shot, the impression we get is that this picture is taken by the model herself, but both the cover and pictorial were shot by Theo Wenner.

Juergen Teller in 2000’s

Interview by Cory Reynolds

February 3, 2016
00_juergen_teller_by_leeta_harding

 Portrait by Leeta Harding, 2000  © Index Magazine

Originally from Index Magazine No.26

Juergen Teller’s photographs make me desire what’s there. They also make me wonder what’s just outside the picture; they make me wish I were there myself. His work is gentle, perceptive, and sexy. Juergen often captures the unguarded moments of the people he’s photographing — no small feat, considering he generally works with top models and celebrities. Whether I’m looking at a picture of Björk and her son in an Icelandic hot spring, Kate Moss in a hotel bed on the day after her 25th birthday, Kurt Cobain tuning his guitar, or O.J. Simpson in a generic Florida hotel room, I always feel like I’m just about to learn a secret.

Shot by Kern

Real girls in real settings around the world

February 1, 2016

Richard-kern

The internet video site VBS, launched by the ironic and ultra-cool American magazine Vice, features original content on a wide range of subjects dear to the hipster heart. One of the first, and still the most popular, ongoing series was “Shot by Kern,” a concept dreamed up by then editor-in-chief Jesse Pearson to roust photographer Richard Kern from his New York environs and have him shoot women Kern-style around the world. In the last seven years Kern has traveled to Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States with a Vice video crew. Fans follow his adventures on Vice.com, from interviewing the real women who dream of being New York Girls, through styling and shooting. What they don’t see, what no one has ever seen, are the photos that result from these video sessions.

Shot By Kern presents some 300 of these photographs for the first time. Those who’ve followed Kern’s adventures on VBS will be especially eager to lay their hands on this book, but all fans will enjoy these fresh-scrubbed amateurs in their first time before the camera. Some are shy, some are brazen, but all have that quirky cuteness Kern seeks in his subjects.

The book includes several photo series. As Richard travels the world he’s noticed cultural similarities between his models and themes have emerged, from the universality of prescription drugs, to a love of technology, to lying in bed, and peering up skirts. And because Kern has always been fascinated by what women do behind the bathroom door, there is lots of intimate personal grooming.

As with Kern’s last TASCHEN book, Action, Shot By Kern comes with an hour long video, shot and edited by Kern, with original music by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, because, like Kern’s models, the modern world is always in motion.

Balensiya

Ride the horse

February 1, 2016
morena_balensiya

Photography by Esperanza Moya

A parabolic arch made with laminated wood, a synthesis of a horse chair. It is a swinging stool playful to the body. You can swing back and forth without touching ground, finding balance between legs, the hip and back in order to find a comfortable position or stretching a particular body zone.

The material’s arch and stiffness activate the inner leg muscles that are not often used. Balensiya came up in the mid 90s not long after beginning in laminated woodcraft works with the Tutombas Pranha, a deck chair to stretch the back.

Horacio Altuna, rivalled only by Milo Manara, easily holds the crown as the best crafter of beautifully rendered, steamingly erotic and wickedly humourous comics. If you’re a fan of Altuna, you would have already read it, as most of the stories published in Heavy Metal, Penthouse Comix and Playboy magazine. If you haven’t read Altuna before, where have you been? I definitely recommend this beautiful renderings of sexy cosmopolitan women.

Naked Fashion Girls

by Mike Dowson

January 5, 2016

mike-dowson

Mike Dowson’s photography is simply a case of capturing the moment – he distances himself from any kind of staging and stylisation. This lack of style has become a style in itself – the style of laissez faire. His photographs of pretty girls appear fresh, unconsumed, spontaneous, tasteful and very erotic. Dowson’s models must always convey the feeling of availability, the pettybourgeois may call them tarts. However, these girls are no such thing, they are just young, being themselves and showing their lust for life.

The legend says that Ferrucio Lamborghini, agricultural equipment manufacturer, started to manufacture cars after an exchange between he and Enzo Ferrari. In an interview for Thoroughbred & Classic Cars Lamborghini said that after the clutch problems with his Ferrari continued to go unresolved he decided to talk to Enzo Ferrari and said: “Ferrari, your cars are rubbish!” to which Enzo Ferrari replied “Lamborghini, you may be able to drive a tractor but you will never be able to handle a Ferrari properly.” That was the point when Ferruccio finally decided to make a perfect car.

The Sheats Goldstein Residence is one of the best known examples of John Lautner’s work; originally built for Helen and Paul Sheats and their three children in 1948-1949. He designed not only the house, but the interiors, windows, lighting, rugs, furniture, and operable features. The house is extensively detailed, and the range of the architect’s work is visible through the different stages of the re-mastering. All of the furnishings enhance the house and are completely related so that the aesthetic of the forms is a function of the whole. The Sheats Goldstein residence was featured in morena issue 3 by Olivier Zahm with Hedy.

An artist to not forget

January 2, 2016

morena-sokol-wb

Playboy wouldn’t be playboy without cartoons. Great gusty quantities of full color, full-page cartoons every month. Eric Sokol was arguably the most gifted artist who ever worked for Playboy, with a keen eye for all of the elements of good drawing- composition, clear silhouettes, original color harmonies, interesting staging and a keen sense of light and shade. There’s a lot to be learned from these masterful cartoons. His style evolved as time went by, and his images became more and more beautiful.

Tropic of Cancer

An Obscene Masterpiece

January 1, 2016

OK_morena-Miller_Tropic_of_Cancer

Upon its publication in 1934, Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer was deemed obscene by the United States Customs Department and was not legally available in the United States. Editions like this one, published in Japan, were smuggled into the U.S. to satisfy demand. Miller had been seeking an American publisher since 1934 and had hoped to defend Tropic of Cancer in court as early as 1936. Local district attorneys, however, were not persuaded, and over 50 cases against the novel were brought to various state and local courts. The ban on Miller’s work was finally lifted in 1964 after a Florida case made its way to the U. S. Supreme Court, which ruled that Tropic of Cancer may be legally sold and distributed throughout the United States.
