It is, we believe, currently impossible to do so.

We are in our late fifties and believe we are representative of a huge pool of active, modern thinking, physically fit and sexually informed people. Yes that includes the “boomers” and the creators and participants of the free love movements and so called sexual revolution.

Yet despite this they are simple not catered for anywhere or featured within sensitively designed and produced pornography, visual arts, much erotic literature or mature narratives or celebrated in creative image making – especially photography.

An untapped market, growing in number and wealth! You would think the business case would be very convincing!

The imagery, which is typically available, is what we refer to as “pink” low level and totally non-erotic mainstream porn exposures or “flashes”. It is rather sad and reminiscent of early “dirty ”magazines of the past sold in brown paper bags.

The other attempts one can find are to be found in the many so-called “amateur” porn postings that have such poor production they are impossible to be bothered with and show mechanical sex, not erotica (Humans rutting is not at all our sort of cuisine”.

Oh yes and do not start us on the so called disgustingly named and derogatory term “granny porn”, or older people with younger “hot” bodies and the so-called cougars etc., etc. Go away mainstream – you have enough of a market to last a lifetime of profits!

So it is our view that we people of a fine vintage need to claim and redefine the current narrow clichéd concept and lens of “what beauty and the erotic looks like”.

To demand that the sort of amazing high quality erotic imagery featuring younger subject matter (that can be found on numerous sites and blogs) become more inclusive to all ages and sexual preferences and lifestyles. That the limited range of erotic imagery made that embraces a feminine sensitivity and perspective join with us and also feature the mature examples that are available.

It is time to feature all those who are ripened to perfection, both physically and by life experiences. Let us become a key part of the celebration and creation of a realistic erotic milieu.

If anyone online has found such examples or content please send us a link.

Read about a photographer celebrating mature bodies.

At last we find an artist working with and celebrating mature bodies. So wonderful to see and note the huge response to Jade Bell’s imagery and comments on Facebook. The time is RIPE  time for the silent majority to become visible again.

A series of nude portraits showing an older, interracial couple is winning the hearts of many on Facebook.

The following image, which was taken by Arizona-based photographer Jade Beall, has been shared more than 15,000 times and racked up 21,000 likes on the social media platform. The people in the photo are 75-year-old Gerry and 70-year-old Darwin, “beloveds for over 20 years,” Beall wrote.

“I refuse to accept the wide spread (mostly Western) [sic] human belief system in regards to what is beautiful, especially when it comes to the sacred vessel we call our body,” wrote Beall, who is starting a new series on couples over the age of 60. “Why do we accept to believe that one thing must be more beautiful than another? Why cannot we embrace a million-billion definitions of beautiful?”

Beall told ATTN: via email that her new photo series of elders has been a long time coming, as a lot of elderly individuals have expressed to her that they feel “invisible in our culture” today:

“I have been wanting to create a series of elders as so many women, and men, write me expressing how they feel invisible in our culture. Finding willing models has been a challenge, but Gerry and Darwin said yes and we had so much fun in the shoot. I knew people would like the photo, but I am shocked at how far it has reached, 2.8 million people according to my [Facebook] analytics.”

Beall said she has come to see that “the world is ready to expand [its] definition of beautiful and [she hopes] to do a book on this precious subject.”

Gerry, the woman in the photo, told Beall: “I love my body. I use a cane, [I] am having vision problems and my breasts reach to my waist, but you know what? I like me!”

CARAVAGGIO

Created, formed and defined by light – the very  essence of the photograph.

So why does not one of these high key creative images feature mature people as the subject matter? Why? The lighting and composional devices employed would lend themselves to capturing those that are ripened to perfection. So why not – a bias agaist the mature body and face? Or a bias towards youth – worshiping as if it was a permanent state. Or recording youth before it fades and evolves into what we fear most?

A collection of images focused on the aesthetic sensibilities of Japanese arts, cultural and landscape.

The aesthetic sensibilities, artisanship and uniqueness of Japanese arts, culture, architecture and landscape. I feel it deeply inside me and it assist to inform my design contemplations and creative visualisations. Open our eyes and mind to a richness informed and ripened to perfection over much time. The symetrical and assymetrical joined in harmony.

VINTAGE IMAGERY

Images  from the past that demonstrate that todays “popular” concepts of beauty and youth are the products of the past distilled down and reinvented – we are not the first.
