Self homage of a photo I took on this day last year.
Light entertainment for a Monday evening,
I was on board until "my own gender largely disgusts me".
Not all cock-bearers are terrible, just the vast majority in my experience.
Do you worry that your work is misinterpreted?
I’m aware of a responsibly, or at least am becoming increasingly aware of one, that goes with projecting your subconsciousness into the public arena.
I’m also aware of the jealous contrast of producing an image or film that is clearly displaying an eroticised depiction of distress and then being annoyed when someone leaves an overtly obvious and base comment that is in part sharing the same intent as the work.
And of course, I am accused of misogyny fairly frequently and have stated many times before that my own gender largely disgusts me and I have nothing but respect for women.
Which isn’t to say I don’t have a selection of thorns in my side at all, but my work is primarily a depiction of my own “assertive”, shall we say, sexuality, which is aimed at my opposite gender and therefore any harshness therein is a product of that rather than any inherent misogyny.
I hope that makes sense, am doing about three things at once here and should probably be devoting less time to tumblr ranting.
your work is great, don't let idiotic fools get to you!
Oh, I don’t - just the “Daddy” and “Cunt” crap that keeps on popping up on here is more than a little annoying. Which, fine, is just going to happen if you release your work into a public arena where commentary is free and anonymous, but still. Bothers me, disappoints me.
Some of the shitty comments left under my images make me want to never pick up a camera again.
