The moon is a loyal companion.

It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.

Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.

antique-erotic:

A truly spectacular set of Victorian pornography, ten pictures I’ve collected from the same extraordinary, beautiful and intensely erotic session, well over a hundred years ago. I believe their connection is clear, in the soft smiles, the eye contact, the tenderness in the way hands lay on bodies, everything tells that this pair were lovers before and after this day on which we see them act out all their passion before the camera.
(Each picture from this adored collection can be picked out singly here should you want to take particular images not the full set as I have arranged it)

Test Shots by Rog Walker.

Test Shots is an ongoing series of portraits taken in the studio with photography couple Rog and Bee Walker. Each photograph, taken mostly of their close friends and fellow creatives, is as striking as it is simple.

Opting for a sombre and dark background, coupled with poised and pensive subjects, Walker’s shots manage to maximize on the simplicity of the traditional portrait style by making use of a medium format camera that provides an image quality which, despite the powerful stillness of each individual, vividly brings the details of each photograph to life. This brings out both a sense of strength and vulnerability in each picture, alluding to the intimate two-way dialog between subject and photographer.

"This is the most organic method of communication I have. Photography is the way I speak…It doesn’t get more personal than another human, and that’s what I’m looking to capture, that connection between humanity." - Rog Walker
