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.  Several Philo members asked me to 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.
