Magazine Women at the CCP

Greg Neville, Magazine Woman no 50.

This is from my Magazine Women series, (see my previous post, Profile Embedded). It’s on display at the Centre for Contemporary Photography Kodak Salon.

Years ago when photographing in the railyards at Flinders Street Station, I found  a soft-porn magazine on the ground. It was weathered and decayed and had even been set fire to, which seems like a creepy ritual to me. All of this damage created a nice contrast to the smooth female bodies inside. The images were scanned and details cropped. It’s a pretty Judeo-Christian project really, all that beauty and pleasure facing the fires of hell.
