artists in the news

Jack Slomovits' New Book
Sex in the West Village, NYC
To be published by Bruno Gmunder

"Slomovits' semi-documentary style leaves little to the imagination;
high-contrast detailed photos are interspersed with portraits in a snapshot aesthetic."


webmaster's corner

We periodically receive inquiries from artists looking for web hosting services that allow erotic content.
The service we use runs $25 a month for their least expensive plan. That's a little high for an artist that is just starting out.
If you use a web hosting service that allows adult content at a reasonable price,
let me know and I'll compile a list for our artists.
