With the slow-drip success of multiplex cinema 3D options for Superman Returns, Up and now Avatar it’s seems the world could now be ready to adopt the stereoscopic format. But what about its fetish potential?
Fetish scene photographer Mark Bennet has been working with video and still film 3D for over ten years and has now released some amazing results for latex fans – without the need for 3D glasses. Mark’s portfolio at www.Start3D.com boasts a series of stunning pictures of foxy 3D rubber clubbers. The effect is achieved by a camera that shoots through two lenses eye-wide apart, simultaneously (while having a glamorous fetish girl stand in front of course).
Mark’s upgrade to the 120mm format, a resolution twice that of IMAX, has resulted in commissions from Turner prize-winner Keith Tyson and the Covent Garden-based Saco hair salon, plus he has captured Anish Kapoor’s ‘Dismemberment of Jeanne d’Arc’ and renowned Lewes firework night procession in Sussex, England, also viewable in his collection.
Mark is also the man behind Black Ice webzine and currently can be seen snapping for Torture Garden.
One of my favorite female photographers – Christine Kessler, is showing her erotic/fetish photography at an exhibit at San Francisco’s Center for Sex and Culture.
There will be an reception on sat. dec. 12 from 7-10 pm where you can meet Christine and some of her models. Entrance is free and there is a age requirement of 18+ years.
Christine will have a limited number of copies of her new book – Nylon Girls – for sale. The book is not yet available in the US!
While searching the net for photographers who shoot latex on film, I stumbled upon this image–shot on Fuji instant film–on Flickr by Eric, a photographer in California, who goes by the name refractionless on the site.
The photograph has such a casual and innocent elegance that I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. Black rubber bathed in golden sunlight and a simple outdoor setting provide a different feel than the usual latex fashion studio work. Plus the model, YKat, is stunningly gorgeous. Eric says the following on the shoot and his photography:
This shot was taken in the Sunset District of San Francisco before we went to Mike West’s Rope::Burn show. The dress is from Syren and YKat is currently doing some fitting work for one of their designers.
YKat started modeling for me about five months ago. She is also a photographer and shoots both digital and film. I am strictly a film user. I like the look of film as well as the process. I shoot medium and large format film almost exclusively. I have many cameras: pinhole, twin lens reflex, field, rangefinder, plastic cam, and panoramic. I also collect expired film. My most recent find was 12 boxes of Tri-X Pan that expired in 1981. I have also got some color negative and instant film with extreme color shifts. I’ve only shot a few packs of Fuji instant peel film (FP-100C45 and FP-100B45). I miss the negative option of Polaroid, but find the Fuji to have great color and tonal range.

I meet French fashion and fetish photographer Maxime Avet at this years German Fetish Ball. Maxime, or Max as he is also called, has some highly regarded artistic photos and has worked with almost all the top models of the fetish scene.
I thought it would be interesting knowing a little more about the “little” frenchman from Lille… so here is my interview with Maxime Avet.
3xL: Hey Maxime! Thanks for letting me interview you.
Max: Thank you too, it’s an pleasure for me!
