STUDIO NEWS: RECENT VINTAGE PRINT SALE

.

This 11 x 14 inch vintage photograph entitled, “Dinner For Two, Philadelphia 1995  is from the book of Tableaux Vivants, published by Editions Stemmle, Zurich, 2002.  The archival print was recently sold to a private collector in Philadelphia for $2500.00.  It was the only print of its kind in inventory and from a  very rare limited edition of prints. The picture is part of a series of Tableaux Vivants I produced between the years 1993 to 2000. This particular photo was staged at the Striped Bass in Philadelphia,  once declared by Esquire Magazine as the number one restaurant in the United States for dining at the time.  Owners, Joe Wolf and Neil Stein commissioned me to make the photograph for an ad that would later run in Philadelphia magazine to promote the famous restaurants “midnight breakfast”.

Diary: Isabella Reneaux – The First Sitting

DIARY: ISABELLA RENEAUX – THE FIRST SITTING

.

The very first sitting with Isabella Reneaux took place just off of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.  I had been searching for an appropriate location for the days until I discovered the most exquisite boutique hotel in the area.  The next time your in town I highly recommend Rittenhouse 1715.  The atmosphere in the hotel got us in a good mood, making it easier to make sexy pictures. Believe it or not, I am not only inspired by the model I work with, but also the environment I work in.  I could have shot her there for days.  It seemed like days anyway.   Isabella knew just how far she could push my imagination and which part of her beauty to emphasize as I clicked each frame.  She became even more at ease once all of her clothes were removed.

DIARY: DAY IN THE LIFE

.

I had just left the studio for a brief walk to have lunch with a new model when I heard a scream from the back seat of a passing taxi. “Tony, Tony, Tony” she said as I noticed a waive from the passing vehicle.  I quickly turned, a familiar face for sure, but couldn’t precisely place the context of the person that was calling out to me. The taxi stopped. Out of the rear door, a very attractive woman exited the vehicle and proceeded to run towards me rapidly.  My heart started to pound as the day suddenly became more exciting and invigorating.  I remembered who she was.  Natalie, a stunning brunette that I photographed several years earlier told me it was such a coincidence to see me that day, because she was just talking to her girlfriend about my work and that she wanted to introduce me to her close friend. I said, “sure just call the studio to set up an appointment.”  That response wasn’t good enough for Natalie.  She insisted right then and there that I go with her to meet a young blond by the name of Jilian, who was working just down the block from where I was about to have lunch.

We hurried to her friend’s place of employment, a classy restaurant in the Penn’s Landing district of Philadelphia where she worked as a hostess.  Natalie insisted once I saw Jilian, I wouldn’t be disappointed.  She guaranteed that I would want to photograph her, and also mentioned that her dear friend had  a desire to have nude photos taken of her.  We entered the restaurant and sat at the bar in anticipation of meeting my new subject.  As soon as Jilian entered the bar, it was almost as if all the air had left the room.  I could already see through her attire as my imagination transported me to an erotic journey with a woman I just met.  I did everything to maintain my cool as I became instantly infatuated by her incredible presence and beauty.

Jilian explained that she had been talking to Natalie about having erotic pictures taken of her to present as a gift to her boyfriend.  The couple were recently engaged to be married.   Because of her employment status, I suggested it would be wise to create a pseudonym for the set of pictures, as I was certain the photographs would be published by one of the magazines I was contributing to.  Norma Rockwell came to mind, as she reminded me of a character that could easily fit into a perverse version of a Norman Rockwell painting.

“Norma” and I made arrangements to meet at a small charming boutique hotel called the Alexander Inn in center city Philadelphia where the sitting would take place.  I asked her to bring a few pieces of lingerie from her wardrobe for the erotic encounter.  As soon as we checked in to our room I asked “Norma” to put some of her items on the bed.  I picked a few things knowing whatever we selected had to accentuate her statuesque physique. The shoot progressed innocently at first and then the sexual persona of this exotic woman took over as she began to gently play with her genitals. All for the love of a man she was soon to marry.

THE PHILO PROJECT

.

During my second year of teaching Photography classes at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012, I was asked by members of  the universities Philomathean Society to lecture about my involvement in erotic photography. Founded in 1813, Philo is a student run literary society located atop College Hall in the heart of campus life.  A small group of  Philo members asked me to be photograph them in the nude as part of their learning experience regarding  this controversial genre of photographic history. The photographs were taken in the halls of the society where traditional adornments contributed to the classically composed imagery. Photographs from the series are now part of the societies records and notes.
