The Green Wood by Simon Strong

Photographer Simon Strong has developed a spooky and surrealistic body of work that draws upon mythological traditions. His photo project The Green Wood represents a fantasy land of hybrid beings, erotic dryads, stumps of trees that are turned into figures, bedeviled hollows and seductive gardens. The overall effect creates a photographic landscape of swoon and nightmare.

The Green Wood was his 2nd solo exhibition which was shown in Sydney and Melbourne last 2010.

This is Not Pornography by Paul Smith

At first glance, you would think that this photography project is pornography, but it is not. In this series, photographer Paul Smith chose to explore the new frontier of the digital aesthetic, depicting fantasy in contrast to reality. He combined the elements of pornography into a forms that is slightly deviates from reality.

The title gives us what Smith intends this work to communicate. “This is not a pornography” is not just a title but also a statement. The most common definition of pornographic image is to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic reactions. The distortions and violent nature of some of these images intends to have a rebarbative effect rather than erotic.
