“Femina Figura “

Erotic and Fetish Artwork Photographer Christina Amezxquita

Photographer: Christina Amezquita

In my humble opinion, what makes me the luckiest woman in the world is my job. I get to sit back in my office and  drink my Caramel with Pumpkin Spice Latte while reviewing THOUSANDS of erotic images submitted from photographers all over the world. Needless to say, there isn’t much I haven’t seen as far as subjects, composition, and erotic content.

What makes my job extra special is when heaven blesses me with an opportunity to luckily stumble ass backwards into artwork that not only makes me wet with the sensuality but leaves my mouth open from the raw power of it. This month’s featured photographer is Christina Amezquita from Peoria Arizona in the United States and this sexxxalishus artist has created  just that. Raw, powerful, sensual artwork that belongs to her.. and her alone.

Christina Amezquita created this very dark and avante garde artwork of equal parts sexuality and raw emotional power bound with the most delicious and copious amounts of  fetishism within it. There is nothing “pretty” about this artist’s perceptions of sexuality but it’s undeniable allure and ability to draw you into her world of sexuality and creativity is without question.

If that was not enough? What makes this collection and this feature the most unique to date, is that the Christina Amezquita is not only the brilliant photographer of this sexxxalishus collection but the model as well!

Sit back, drink your beverage of choice and marinate with me as we admire, respect, and enjoy the creativity and brazen fetish  sexuality of Christina Amezquita’s “Femina Figura” collection.

Muuuah!

What was the inspiration behind this collection?

A combination of sensuality, frustration, passionate anger and love, solitude, despair, hope, intensity, and command.

What was the biggest challenge in any of these pieces? The biggest challenge is choosing which of the 50 photos that practically look the same is the one. Should I show them in a “set” or should I stick to one? Sometimes it takes days other times it takes years. Sometimes I need to email people and ask them what they think.

Which piece is your favorite out of this collection? I like Mors Voluntaria 3. I don’t know how many times someone has told me I needed mental health services over that photo. So that’s the photo!

Why? I have had a lot confusion regarding mainstream ideology and feminist ideology. I don’t agree completely with either side, but I don’t disagree completely either. Feminist ideology can be just as ridiculous, oppressive, and discriminatory as mainstream ideology. For example if I want to be a feminist I should probably not take photos of women in lingerie, but I think I do it in a way that is empowering. When I throw in sharp objects and hike up the contrast the photos commands attention but not in this objective way. It appears to be to command thought. This photo “Mors Voluntaria” does that. It’s a very feminine women who is being unlady like by being “dangerous”. But she is neither complying entirely to mainstreamism or feminism. It is done the way she wants and in the combination of femininity and deviance that she wants. It’s doesn’t seek to appease anyone. It just is. People don’t fit neatly into one box. That’s a fantasy.

Which piece is your least favorite out of this collection? The least favorites are the ones where my cat gets her ass in the shot and ruins it! Those you will NEVER see. LOL. But I think your question is which is your least favorite out of the ones you do publish online. Least favorite just doesn’t exist. Now I have other collections that are not erotic. Instead they include landscapes, trash, old architecture, etc. They are my least favorite because a person is not in it.

Why? Non-human photos are the least favorite because they are the least relevant to me. I think I and all humans like photos of other people most because it’s egocentric. We like eye candy but we also like images that remind us of ourselves or appease our interests. Photos of other people are a reminder of our own existence. Depending on the photo it may provoke you to think about who you are, what your goals are, and what you are about in life. It causes you to question and compare. A picture of another human conjures primal thoughts. Trees can’t do that shit.

Could you please share with us one hint on what you did to make this collection so special? It’s edgy, erotic, and in “good” taste. The photos are a counter act to spoiled American instant gratification. Instead they require you to fill in the blanks or the “cropped” out parts. An ass is not handed to you by a click of the mouse.

Any unique plugins, Actions or textures?  Nope, I am lame. Procedure is pretty basic. I usually use digital. However, I have taken 35mm. The magic is in contrast, cropping, and using polarized objects i.e. objects that usually don’t “belong” together. A little deconstructive George Bataille approach.

If you were not a photographer; what would you probably do for a living? I am an unpaid photographer and therefore photography is not what I do for a “living” it’s what I do for dying i.e. I am down for the cause. I do this because I love it. I am a graduate student, single parent, intern at Center for Positive Sexuality, write magazine articles regarding sexuality, and I do a lot of community activism. These are things I do for a living on top of being a photographer.

What do you look for in your models? Being voluptuous and curvy in the right places is important, but attitude also has a lot to do with it. Do they have a sense of humor? Usually I have ideas but I also invite them to do a set with their ideas. Are they “sassy”? Or perhaps women that have a sense of entitlement because they are hot? Models are usually bat shit crazy, point blank, or at least the ones I have met. But keep in mind I am from Los Angeles. This is where I got the idea to use mannequins i.e. mannequins don’t talk. In addition, another great thing is I am female and I am straight, so I simply move on and can simply take photos of myself.

Did you enjoy working with your model/s? In this collection all the photos are of me. However, I shoot my photos of mannequins, dilapidated buildings, trash, unique people, and landscapes. I like working with other people but at times I feel like I can produce more and exactly how I want it if I use myself. I never have scheduling problems with myself. Nor must I pay myself LOL.

Please share with the thousands of other photographers who are going to see this collection what makes your artistry so unique? I take photos of myself. The high contrast is start and exudes intensity which is something I rarely see in “female” focused photos. Most erotic photos are nude while mine are not at all. I hint at it, but I don’t use it. These photos don’t just hand you a naked body. Instead they slap you in the face and provoke more thoughts. Plus these photos always remind me of 80 punk flyers because of how stark and grainy they look. It’s somewhere between that and Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon. It’s vintage but yet cutting edge. It’s sensual but yet violent. It’s not nude, but yet you do see it. A lot of contrasts that go beyond just the visual “black and white”. Like Hollywood, fucked up but glamorous.
