The Great Selfie Collection
For the photographer, eroticism is suggestion. Pornography, just a treatise on anatomy."
The famous German erotic photographer Uwe Ommer armed a few girls (models and amateurs) with cameras and automatic shutters and invited them to photograph themselves, giving free rein to their most erotic desires and inspiration. The result was the wonderful Do it yourself.
It is a highly interesting and very inspiring work. What kinds of erotic poses are more democratic than the selfie? None. Anyone can do it, anywhere, anytime. All you need is a camera (and nowadays we all carry a smartphone with us), the attitude of liking ourselves and the courage to show our body.
Inspired by the work of Ommer and other artists like Giuseppe Petrilli, I started making selfie-type drawings several years ago. But it wasn't until 2020 that I reviewed all of my work and thought it was worth improving that collection of old illustrations, adding some new ones, and publishing them in the best possible way.
And here is the result of five years of hard work: The Great Selfie Collection. I have made a selection of 101 illustrations that I have divided into 9 thematic chapters that move between the subtle sensual insinuation and the most explicit eroticism. I hope you like it.
