Nora Geist: Fine Scenes

Aesthetic photography is my passion. People—places—things: you are the spotlight!

Saintly Cadavers (If you are under 18 or if this material offends you, do not enter.)

‘A Blessed Sacrilege’ (1995): Georges Bataille’s erotic novella “The Story of the Eye” was the inspiration for my photographic depiction of a grotesque and erotically charged unholy communion. I shot the original content in black & white film and then coloured each photo to add a provocative and exhibitionistic quality to the set. The models’ skin has the appearance of polished wax, like that of the 'incorruptible' corpses of saints displayed in reliquaries of various churches, cathedrals and basilicas. I used a Konica AUTOREFLEX T4 35mm Film SLR Manual for the entire layout. *Click on each thumbnail to view the larger picture with details as well as numerous outtakes.
