Anuschka Blommers & Niels Schumm: The Future of Sex

jux-blommers-schumm-6

Amsterdam duo Bloomers & Schumm have an eye for capturing their subjects as much as the clothing in their fashion shoots and always manage to depict intriguing narratives of hyper-real scenarios. Recently they were commissioned to produce a series for the latest issue of Baron, a magazine that aims to blur the boundaries between porn and art. It’s part of a new wave of publications that explore the niche of seemingly sophisticated fetishisms (see also Odiseo, Talc, and Adult).

Their images for ‘The Future of Sex’ merge the male and female body into contorted positions. Muscular and pale skinned, the bodies lie elongated across office carpets while their unsettling blurred gender results in a dehumanising effect.

Ribeyron is a unisex fashion atelier founded in early 2014 and based in Paris. “We design and produce by hand every piece in our parisian atelier. The first women’s collection is an exploration of wood as a wearable material, in which it is moulded to the human body to fit the curves. The collection consists of six separate pieces crafted from a combination of bent sycamore wood and vegetal dyed calf leather. Each object is intended as a piece of architectural ornamentation for a different part of the body. Pictures were taken by Charles Negre and Atelier Ribeyron.”
