The Perverted Beauty In the Motel Room Nudes By Mark Maggiori

3 min

The painter and photographer Mark Maggiori (1977) was born and raised in France, in a small town in Fontainebleau. The town is located in the largest forest in France, in which there is a beautiful castle. He spent his childhood there skateboarding and watching his dad's porn, and Fellini movies.

Beauty and Perversion

Maggiori has been taking photographs and painting female nudes for a long time, but started shooting girls on the phone in 2011. His work balances on the border between beauty and perversion. He believes he's trying to shape and give life to his childhood fantasies, an ode to women that is a perpetual search to make them look amazing.

Blurred Like a Polaroid

In his opinion, eroticism is what we don't really see; it's what we imagine. It's blurred like a Polaroid. Therefore his pictures can be blurred or dirty. He doesn't care, because it's what's inside that counts. Still, he aims at arousal when he takes erotic photographs. Otherwise, it's just a photo of a person.

Pretty Dangerous Game

In an interview with Dian Hanson* he explains, 'The difficulty is trying to keep this type of project artistic. Shooting naked girls in motel rooms can be a pretty dangerous game. You have to draw lines. I try to be as clear as possible with the girls from the beginning, to always show my professionalism, because it's pretty difficult to get a girl naked on her knees with her butt in the air.'
