Snowy Venus 2: by Robert Farber




A day of unexpected snow again in the South East of England so a good excuse for another snowy Venus.  We haven't been able to post for some time due to a problem with our computer which has now, happily, been rectified.

This picture is the work of American photographer Robert Farber whose one and only Penthouse shoot in 1976 we featured on our Seduction of Venus blog.  This picture is from around the same time and before he largely moved to black and white shots in the eighties.

By overexposing one stop and using a light coating of hairspray on a skylight filter he gets his unnamed Venus to appear to be either emerging from the snow or being consumed by it; like a Nordic snow nymph.

Alma-Tademaesque Venuses



Agent Triple P was trying to clear some stuff from the loft today and came across this fine picture in one of his cuttings boxes.  The pictorial feature from which this comes was, we think, from Vogue sometime in the eighties and was punningly entitled Heavenly Being by the Sea.  The barely concealed nymphets were photographed by Alex Chatelain in the manner of an Alma Tadema painting; all blue sea, distant mountains and floaty white garments.
