From The Nu Project
“The Nu Project is a series of honest nudes of women from all over the world. The project began in 2005 and has stayed true to the original vision: no professional models, minimal makeup and no glamour. The focus of the project has been and continues to be the subjects and their personalities, spaces, insecurities and quirks.”

Also, it’s not to late to visit the CSC and see “From the Golden Age of Porn: The Photography of Paul Johnson”
July 6-28, 2012
The Center for Sex and Culture is proud to present the art of Paul Johnson, one of the most innovative and best selling magazine photographers during the “Golden Age of Porn” (roughly 1968-1983). This exhibition features his photography of Bay Area porn stars including Nina Hartley and Juliette Anderson aka Aunt Peg.
Johnson pioneered POV (point of view) photography out of his desire to participate in the hot sex he was photographing. Johnson developed his method by using wide angle lenses to put himself in the picture and became simultaneously model and photographer.
During the beginnings of the Golden Age, Johnson was on staff at Jaybird Enterprises while they were pushing the barriers of what could be published. Among his accomplishments there, Johnson’s photographs for the first hardcore publication sold in U.S. adult bookstores: Sex in Marriage, was a marriage manual with “socially redeeming” text. Sex in Marriage was strategized by 1st Amendment lawyer Stanley Flieshman and Johnson’s editor, Bob Reitman.
Politically and historically groundbreaking, Paul Johnson’s compelling and beautiful photographs are not to be missed.
Please join the Center for Sex and Culture July 21st for what is sure to be an amazing day of photography.
CHARLES GATEWOOD: The Body and Beyond—Fifty Years of Alternative Photography
When Charles Gatewood began photographing America’s sexual underground in the early 1960s, he was considered by many to be an obsessed eccentric whose concerns were extremely marginal. Today, however, as public nudity, blatant exhibitionism, full body tattooing and piercing, and various forms of sadomasochistic excess have entered mainstream culture, Gatewood’s photographs appear not only historically significant, but also uncannily prophetic.
In his lecture, Charles will show his favorite photographs, describe how he built his erotic archive, and will answer all questions. Please join us for this special evening honoring Charles Gatewood’s achievements as a family photographer of our radical sex community.
