Unnamed(Image by Venfield 8)

The latest sexually charged, explicit image from Venfield 8—right here (Work Unfriendly)—is a shocker. 

Check this out for context:

The artist VENFIELD8 has always been subversive. His images routinely skewer society’s perceptions of our consumerist culture and our attraction/revulsion of male nudes. He upends preconceived notions of beefcake erotica by giving gravity to images you might ordinarily just swipe by. Doing so would be a shame and to your determent, because unlike the millions of images on the internet - especially those depicting pretty men, his work does more than elevate the genre, it breaks the mold. Take, for instance his latest piece, titled American Fear. In a post election environment, it perfectly encapsulates the current and historical mood, brought into acute focus, not by being blatant, but by posing narrative questions. Like all good art, it engages you by withholding any easy answers and leaves you to search yourself to grasp it’s true meaning. It looks like an old photograph, folded, creased and hidden away in someone’s pocket - concealing an image so incendiary and strangely erotic you instinctively know it should’t be shown. It is a dirty picture, but not for the obvious reasons. Its not about what you see, but how you feel. The model is at once defiant and vulnerable, exhibiting the artist’s trademark whiff of fashion glamour but in a situation far from the glossy pages of a magazine. It is an uneasy tableaux, full of layered dichotomy and mystery. VENFIELD8 knows how to play the race card, but also the sex, luxury and beauty ones.  He gets masculinity and social hypocrisy, and with American Fear, you have a master showing his hand. — C.

I had some of the best of my surreptitious photos made into a 60" X 14.4" poster for my apartment. Some of them are really quite rich. Others are just hawt.

Twenty years from now, I hope my images are an interesting document of the 2000s and 2010s.

He's A Loser Baby: So How Come He Might Win? Comments (0)

Unnamed(Barbara Kruger for New York Magazine)

Jonathan Chait, in a major story for New York Magazine, ponders how much of a game-changer FBI Director Comey's action, widely disparaged on the right and left, really is.

He sums it all up chillingly:

Comey’s announcement will probably not sway enough voters to make Trump president. But it might, and — given the stakes — that “might” ought to be a terrifying and galvanizing prospect.

He also points out the galling unfairness that Comey, doing his job, has remained tight-lipped on the influence the Russians may have on Trump's campaign:

Importantly, Comey has withheld any comment at all on links between Trump’s campaign and Russian cyberattacks designed to subvert the presidential election. When Representative Jerry Nadler presented Comey earlier this year with questions about Trump adviser Roger Stone, who has boasted of his “back-channel communication” with Julian Assange, Comey very properly refused to confirm whether any investigation was under way.

This country is teetering on the verge of making a historical mistake. If Trump slips in days before the election after being solidly behind for the entire, messy, sordid, gut-wrenching, expensive, time-conduming thing, I think America as an experiment will rightly be declared to have failed.

Let's get out and vote—for Hillary, and against Trump.
