11:30AM “Humor, Tenderness, Absurdity, Intensity: The Intimate Kink.com” – photo presentation and lecture by Master of Erotic Art David Steinberg

David Steinberg has been taking still photographs during video shoots at Kink.com since 2009. Much of what he finds there – intimacy, tenderness, attention to detail, deep emotional connections – is not what you might expect from a BDSM porn shoot, not to mention equally remarkable qualities of humor, playfulness, intensity, and absurdity. Altogether, it’s a wonderful spectrum of human emotion.

David has chosen a selection of favorites to document the unique, intense, crazy, and loveable world of Kink.com and Public Disgrace, and we are pleased to offer this photocollage, with his commentary, at Festival.
