|Fae - 011213 - Side B|
Shadows, by definition, are areas shrouded from light - but created by that same light. In shadows there are form and fantasy, secrets and sins, truths and teases. Welcome to shadowsexposed.com where we celebrate the shadows in art, in the mind, and in life. Join us on an artistic adventure as we explore the darker side of photography and expose the not-always-pretty but eternally mesmerizing shadows of the human experience.
Miz B - Model, art director, & ring-leader of a band of merry mischievous minions. Her out-loud voice would get her in trouble if she slowed down long enough to get caught … fortunately she's a force of nature zooming through the universe at the speed of B, fueled by her passion for beauty, self-expression, and creativity. Her calling in all her endeavors is to unlock the primal in those around her, giving them permission and means to surrender to the shadows & revel in their passions.
Side B (SB) – Photographer, multimedia artist, and recently accused pornographer. Remember when albums and cassettes had a Side B? It was the music you did not hear because the popular songs were on the side A. The side B songs were usually darker and rarely appreciated for their unique composition and stories the musician was creating and sharing. We all have a side "b". For SB it is the dark side. It is not an evil side, just not as naive or innocent as he is most of the time. This side has lots to offer to art, yet would not go well with his Side "A" life and art.
"Here there be nipples" OR "Oh, no - another sex blog!" Are we the only ones jaded to the eternal use of sex and shock to sell, entice, amuse, and otherwise titillate the internet? Especially in America, we seem to have lost sight of the forest for the trees (phallic reference most intentional)! In part, this blog is a seeking … a yearning for the lost arts of seduction and meaning in a culture of instant superficial gratification. Yes, there will be erotica here. Some will be subtle, some will be raw, some will be comfortable, and some will not. All will be an exposure of the shadows that inspire our art and our passions … shadows that you may recognize and share.
You, our beloved readers and viewers (voyeurs?), are the vital third partner in our creative ménage à trois. We desire, need and encourage your thoughts, reactions, and comments on what we share. Don’t worry; we don’t bite (unless either you enjoy it or bite first.)
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. from Sonnet XVII ~Pablo Neruda
