Marc Blackie - London based erotic photographer, film maker and content provider

Marc Blackie is a London based award-winning English photographer and filmmaker, whose erotic short films and photography inhabit a world of sexually charged artistic surrealism and have been described as “Jarringly combining eroticism with the uncomfortable and sinister” by the New York Magazine.

Starting in the Art Nude genre, Blackie spent several years as an erotic photographer before moving onto erotic film and animation under the title of disappointed virginity.

His often controversial work is never happier than when poking fun at the ridiculous of the human libido and what passes for our collective sexual imagination and he is as likely to be inspired by the tropes and cliches of Japanese pornography as by the likes of Bataille, Bergman, and Bellmer as well as the long shadow cast by the surrealist movement.

Though mainly concerned now with the short films (“Fucking Doesn’t Help” received it’s premiere at Vienna’s Atelier Theatre and went on to win multiple awards including “Best Experimental Film” at Hong Kong’s Third Culture Film festival), he still also works as a photographer in North London, pulling pieces from the depths of the decadent subconscious to smash together, creating something a little awkward, a little absurd and maybe a little arousing from the resulting detritus.

He has worked with such inspiring performers and artists as Tessa Kuragi, Nina Kate, Tindra Frost, Sophie Anderson, Sweet Severine, Maya Homerton, Ropebaby, Adreena Winters, Valis Volkova and many more and his work has appeared on Nick Knights ShowStudio and at many galleries and festivals around the world.

“Brilliant erotic surrealist photography which exploits and examines the iconography of eroticism, full of introverted beauty and a vein of very black humour underpinning a variety of sexual hang ups. Exceptional and inspirational.”
