Tony Ward: Obsessions

OBSESSIONS

.

Over the past twenty three years Tony Ward has photographed a virtual garden of desire. He’s made it his focus – an obsession – to explore the ever evolving subject of human sexuality. This very large body of work (over 1000 selected photographs)  was inspired by an inner directive. It came  to him in March of 1993 as an epiphany; a self-realization that is illusive to describe.  It was a feeling, an instinct, a longing, a motivation, an inner yearning within the innate creative process. This awakening clearly defined a new photographic exploration of the human spirit. This is Tony Ward.

Diary: Hannah & Heidi

HANNAH & HEIDI

.

I first met Hannah through the gentlemen’s club scene in Philadelphia during the late 1990’s. She was a popular adult entertainer with an exotic look and a charming demure personality.  I was shooting material at the time for a company online called MET who catered to an audience that liked soft delicate romantic pictures of young women who were natural beauties. No cosmetic surgery allowed for any model submission to the publication . Hannah was a perfect casting for MET. The bonus surprise on the day of the shoot was her childhood friend, Heidi also wanted to be photographed with Hannah, but not totally nude.  It was a typical hot and humid day in Philly that August, so I suggested to Hannah; that she take a shower conveniently located on the grounds of the property that served as a backdrop for the series.

Noel Zheng: Untitled (“Bare”)

.

 

An ongoing project by Noel Zheng, Copyright 2018

Untitled (“Bare”)

.

The specifications of this project was based around the idea of “sex sells” and “Erotica”. In response to this, I developed, more or less, a social project on what it means to be sexy and attractive in the 21st century.

The idea behind this project is to explore the interaction between the model and a white button up shirt, and how this article of clothing is used to accentuate or mask the body; this takes the model to the brink of what they are confident with. In any of the cases along the spectrum, the model will thus be confident and comfortable with how much or little they are showing. Therefore, this resonates the idea that skin or no skin can be equally sexy and attractive. At the project’s core, skin is just skin.

I interviewed each model during each photography session both to reap the safest and body positive environment, and to understand their confidence in their own skin. Some of the answers are as follows (responses provided by differing models):

What makes a man/ woman beautiful/ attractive to you?

Confidence, 100%. If someone is confident in themselves and shows this when they are around others, I think it makes them more attractive and more beautiful than any surface appearance.

Follow up question: do you feel beautiful/ attractive?

I think I’m beautiful. I don’t often think of myself as attractive.

When do you feel the proudest of who you are?

When I’m creating-in the kitchen, behind the camera, on a canvas, on paper and then when I’m looking at my finished creation. Also, when I see that I’ve made an impact on someone else, that’s definitely a very proud moment!

What three things do you value the most about your body?

I most value my body for what it is capable of. In terms of aesthetics, I value my abs, my lips and my butt, of course.

What three things do you value the most?

Money, food, and friends. In that order.
