“I’m a guy with camera who is inspired by the naked female form. I shoot the sacred… and the profane, as they are one in the same.”
–Michael Joseph Edmonds
Michael Joseph Edmonds’ [MJE] subjects are cheeky and strutting. That sashay before his camera with the attitude and swagger necessary to create captures of Edmonds’ perspective of his work as ‘filthy glamour.’ Indeed, the rawness of his images are expertly crafted and consistent in their provocative reach for your balls. Proudly playful and indecently glamorous, Michael’s works tease and tempt you to give thought to joyful exploration of your own sensuality.
I embrace my fascination with all things sensual through this work. I like to call it erotic editorial but filthy glamour is probably more accurate.”
-Michael Joseph Edmonds
The New York based photographer is a the lead photo retoucher for AVON by day and an artist of eroticism on his off hours. His fascination with sensuality is ubiquitous throughout all of his works which have that raw edge of New York grunge in them. His images are gutsy, unapologetic and sassy and whether joyful or dramatic, these provocative works are intense with that ’swaggerific’ intensity that has become his signature. And its that signature cocky strut that tempts you to step up and find your own inner ostentatious stride.
