(THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY)
Has noticed the work of one Chas Ray Krider. Born in the 1950’s, it is clear that he misses a bygone era of America he only just missed himself. Where I believe this acclaimed fetish photographer excels (and in excess) are his Motel Fetish Pictorials. Motels have a strange place in American iconography. Sleazy is usually that spring to mind. A place where hookers ‘do business’, where couples meet who do not wish to be recognise when they play away from home. Criminals on the run who want a cheap place to rest at risk from being busted by the cops at any time.
So to have a series of pictures that show beautifully shot beautiful women in states of undress and languid limbs. What does help in addition to Krider’s clear skill with a camera is that he had the good sense to use Dita Von Teese.
