Pierre Louÿs. Untitled Nude.

.

Louÿs's nudes are often out of focus, off the cuff photographs, depicting disheveled women with obscured faces -- something done presumably to protect the identities of the women, but which gives the pictures an unsettling and enigmatic character.

Pierre Louÿs wrote:
I do not like to see a girl agitated
Anytime an ardent young man goes at her cunt,
Grab hold of the prick and then brusquely fellate it
In order to swallow the kid she does not want.

Pierre Louÿs. Untitled Nude. 1897.

.

And three more poems from Pybrac to top it all off:

Pierre Louÿs wrote:
I do not like to see the German actress run
Without a candlestick to the loo down the hall,
Get buggered by mistake by a fellow’s hard-on
And drive back in the turd that had wanted to fall.

I do not like the man within an alleyway
Who jumps on a poor skirt and screws a poor anus,
Then seeks the cunt in front as he buggers away
And finds a Priapus instead of a Venus.

I do not like to see a virgin who’s not coy
And will suck everything if her pussy gets licked,
Who will do sixty-nine with a handsome young boy
But who has never come with her cunt on a dick.

What's great is that the picture is already taken before it goes public. It's in secret. The trust that develops from such a habit engenders risk, and you realise you're not as vulnerable as you thought. Once you become comfortable with being more truthful about who you are, the easier it is, the prouder you become. That's the way it unfolded for us.

Carl de Keyzer. India. Jaipur. Jantar Mantar. Astronomy complex. 1986.

.

De Keyzer's visual style employs a fierce geometry, with compositions emboldened by a cacophony of lines and angles that converge and collide, giving his pictures a fractured or chaotic appearance.

Carl de Keyzer. Brussels. Belgium. 1985.

Quote:
Unlike many photographers who produce several thousand images for a given project, de Keyzer counts his images by the tens of thousands. During an 18 month project, de Keyzer followed Europe’s coastlines to document the sea level and tidal changes. He stopped at 6000 locations, where he produced a total of 80,000 images.

From this article on De Keyzer's working methods and various projects.

Carl de Keyzer. Russia. Moscow. Swimming pool near Kremlin. Now place of new cathedral. 1988.

.

De Keyzer's images seem to emerge from some other world, a parallel dimension where everything is slightly off-kilter and therefore strange and sometimes vaguely threatening.

Then for your edification, and at the risk of seeming repetitious, I'll repeat my often repeated statement that I, too, am enjoying the thread. Repeatedly!

Carl de Keyzer is one of my favorites so far. Wish I could clik pix like him.
