It made me a product.

I’d be weird to not acknowledge how many changes SG brought about in my personal and professional life. SG was a starting point for my work as a photographer. It gave me some nice new impulses, it connected me with models, and gave me opportunities to shoot a lot and improve my work. It opened up a whole web

Oh and thanks to you (and Malloreigh) for inspiring me with your 365 photo projects to do my own version for building things.
oldernow:
@Dwam @Missy  Thank you both for these reflections and observations.  Years ago a young woman came to me to talk about her career as a stripper.  "It's not as glamorous as it looks" she informed me.  I was taken aback as I had never considered it to be a glamorous profession, and in my first sessions with her I felt myself inclined to support her disillusionment.. but as we examined her opening statement (often a mandala for therapy) she did NOT say "It's not glamorous" but rather It's not AS glamorous as it LOOKS." so we began to explore where the glamor was (and no, not in the fey sense of Scottish glamor,@Annalee)... and found that there was indeed a community, a way of living which allowed her income, time with her very young children and at least half the time a positive, energizing experience of herself.  So we set about setting boundaries and searching venues for her work that strengthened those elements, while keeping to the guideline that it would not ever be fully glamorous - nor, so far as I can tell is there such a profession on this planet.  Most professions are defined by our capacity to tolerate some form of empty repetition - including my own (astrologer as you know, Dwam)   PARAGRAPH (boy do I wish this were a feature here).  Dwam to say I am sorry to see you leave is an understatement; not because I particularly like the current iteration of this site, but because, like you I very much do NOT. It is almost entirely without diversity of weight/age/color/queergender elements -- my local middle school does a better job of this -- and i truly miss the intimacy of community which has been blown away by the lack of truly private groups any more - so much so i've had to withdraw my own photograph and abandon blogging -- / BUT back to you, Dwam.  A woman, a human, a soul, a sprite, an agony of honesty, an explorer, a raw naked POWER of reality.  wherever you are, I will hope to find you and endure what you have to say about me and my kin, as well as what you expose of your grace and grit.  / Were there a way for you to be here as a VOICE and not--as you most certainly are--a product-- that would be a good thing.  PARAGRAPH.  @Missy: you need these elder stateswomen and need to find a way for them to be here, perhaps not as they were, and perhaps not visible to 'us' the leering readership.  also I think a 'fair warning' and vetting of erstwhile hopefuls is in desperate need of being written and workshopped with 'the girls' if this site is to be feminine and not merely Mctitties with Ink on the Side.  @Bob has had some interesting things to say on this subject to me as we discussed one of my clients joining as an SG.  Becoming an SG is, even in its most radical years, a sacrifice of the 'girl' for the sake of the whole; there is an empowerment and a flattering, confirmation of one's beauty and a wonderful moment of belonging... but then... but then... there is distance, disappointment, expectations, fallout with family, lovers, and professional futures... more so than getting a tattoo on one's face.  I think that having some of the SG elders craft a "this will be your journey, are you REALLY sure you are ready to take this -- and equally importantly -- a communal committment to these candidates to take the ride with them as they arc through this site and out the other side.  for most will leave; the question is, will they leave as a graduation and as a celebration of a new phase, or will they leave in despair, shame, and saturated in all the self-negations which caused them to hopeful seek this site in the first place.  To be human, to me, is to evolve, not merely run in a circle.    I don't know if this can be facilitated, and it surely cannot be done correctly since we are all incorrect in our humanity - but, perhaps, it is worth a try.

You have such a February face,

So, this year, I turned 30, I moved house, went through 2 kind of break-ups, inflamed a 5th tendonitis ; I quitted a job, shot some porn ; I read a lot and I fell in love.

I went to New York and New Orleans, London, Edinburgh and Berlin, Paris, Strasbourg, Annecy, Angoulême.

2015, come, my body is ready.

I shot pretty guys with make-up on. I solemnly swear, henceforth, to never again shoot any picture of a man without kohl eyeliner on. I swear.

Seriously they are so ridiculously good-looking with a super simple minimum make-up. Why isn’t it already SUPER TRENDY for men to wear kohl, TELL ME ?

It seems Berlin has always been all about sex with me !

First with Swedish loves, then with Berliners lovers, and this year again holiday with a lover and the Porn Festival. It's in the water. Conclusion of the week : though the Porn Festival was really lovely and everyone adorable ; watching collectively your own porn movie in a theater is the unsexiest thing ever...

Berlin is all about sex (for you)? Wow! I wish I could say the same for my place of residence but lately its all about rain clouds and noisy drunk people arguing in the street late at night!! Oh the other hand my neighborhood seems to be home to many an all night sex party for the local cats (judging by the feline wailing that often echoes down the street during the small hours of the morning).

PS Your profile pic is utterly awesome!!!

This is the best birthday message I received :
"There are two kinds of people : those who celebrate their 30's by releasing a lesbian arty porn video, and the others. You can be proud to be part of the first category !"

Yep, we shot a new video with Four Chambers this summer :

I stopped shooting for a while. I needed a break. I think I'm still having that break and slowly recovering. I'm trying to produce better images, in harmony with my own ethics. I'm trying to create soulful pictures. I'm trying to infuse more of my own world into them, too.

Back from Scotland, where I had the most beautiful time with my siblings, and my dear @annalee

Traveling seems very different now. Is it aging ? It's more bittersweet and quiet than exciting and draining as it used to be. And that's perfectly fine to me.

Your new photographs are very cool and touching, things like the haziness and double exposure effects add to the atmosphere they radiate. And I'm always looking forward to another @dwam day on SG!

Whereas I grew up quite far from our pervasive image culture's brainwashing, it's pretty sad to realize that I eventually got into it later, in my twenties.

I've been lucky enough as a child, being solitary, educated and quite protected. I never opened a magazine. I didn't care about fashion. I didn't watch tv much, and stopped watching any after

One thing I still love about this site are the few thought provoking blogs I do get on my feed. I find it a real struggle to do nude modelling but not be objectified or dehumanised. (And I still have those one or two people who say I can't possibly be feminist because I take my clothes off for money). But yeah, I think you're right. It's just really difficult to find that middle road. Now; off to catch up on the sets you've shot this year x
