Shades of Lust and Pain
Text in English, French & German. Uwe Dupke, born 1952, lives in Andalusia, Spain and just outside Cologne Germany; he has been a professional photographer since 1970, and specialises in people and erotic nudes. He believes that honest and passionate images can only be created if the models are fully integrated into the design process. In addition to the selection of area and location, this also includes the choice of outfits and make-up. A new trend has emerged, as fifty percent of models want to be in fetish and bondage shots. Together with the models, various fetish clubs, bondage apartments, special hotels and swinger clubs are then selected together as locations. The job of the photographer is to capture the erotic fantasies of the models, as well as any developments that happen spontaneously during the session itself. This procedure means that at the beginning of a session, it is often unclear which technology is going to be used. As a rule, the 60 megapixel Hasselblad is used for medium format shots, and for a rapid series of exposures, Canons professional cameras. For pronounced lighting effects, Uwe Dupke always uses a gallows. Fetishism: is this fantasy or reality? Wow! This is exciting, sweaty, sexy photography!
