CONSEXUAL – Alex Apostolidis

MARCH 22, 2018

Mainstream pornography is filled with images of violence, misogyny and insecurity. I want these images to challenge the power dynamic presented in typical erotic imagery that we consume these days by being ambiguous, yet consensual and confident through composition and lighting. Redefining the sexuality in gender ambiguity, these images are challenging the idea of femininity by having feminine motifs plastered onto gender ambiguous models. These images are healthy and sex positive explorations of the parameters of what is art and pornography. Without the graphic visuals of genitalia and sexually expressive faces, the imagination takes hold of what context the situation is in.
