The Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography – volume 4

cover of The Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography – volume 4

I have 6 pages in The Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography vol. 4, publication date is August 15th in the UK and late September in the USA. It features more than 440 erotic photographs by 74 photographers. Apart from me, other contributors include, Charles Gatewood, Chas Ray Krider, Natacha Merritt, Craig Morey, Dave Naz, George Pitts and many others.

For this edition, each photographer was asked to choose a favourite models to create this compelling portfolio of muses. I don’t really have muses but I chose a girl I have worked with several times over the last few years, Tessa Kuragi, a girl who once claimed I had serial killer potential and I am not sure whether she was joking either (see the video Interview with a Serial Killer at the bottom of the page).

She is Jamaican and I first met her in 2006 while she was still a student. She emailed me some amateur snaps and asked if she could model for me. Since then she has gone on to work with many fine photographers. Below are the 7 images used in the book.

Here are some of the other images I have taken of her over the years.

She told me she was off to see her mum. If you have the balls or perhaps the pudenda to wear one, get it here.

Before settling on acupuncture needles, I tried piercing needles. Here is Tessa painfully piercing herself.
