Photographer Zhamak Fullad presents, “Dogtown”, her first solo photography exhibition In Vancouver at The Fall Tattooing and Gallery located at 644 Seymour St on Friday, September 26thfrom 8pm-2am.

 

Featuring a live performance by folk musician Elliot C. Way, DJ sets by Keenan Cave and Liam Leer, with an artistic appearance from Graffiti artist Darwin Seculles, this evening promises to be full of unexampled art and entertainment.

Fuelled by a desire to create raw and unique images, Zhamak chose to photograph male friends and acquaintances in both digital and film format. “I already get my models to be natural” she states, “The grains of film capture that beautifully”. Without a need for flashy make-up and hair, Zhamak was able to put focus on her subjects vulnerable personalities and emotions.

“Dogtown” is an exhibit hoping to inspire us to step out of the self-obsessed world of social media faux-fame and into the world of true human connection.

 

Doors open at 8pm, admittance is by Donation (suggested donated of $2)

For Immediate Release: Artist Fang Ling Lee presents "Public Displays of Intimacy"

Within every being, there is an undeniable desire and insatiable appreciation for self-expression. It is only natural that we are inspired by each other.”  –Fang Ling Lee 

Public Displays of Intimacy
Shining a light on our most personal moments

One cannot deny the astronomical impact that technological advancements have had on the way we communicate with one another.

Being social has never been easier, or more addictive. Friends, lovers, and “likes” are just a finger tap away. Likewise, our wants, needs, and loneliness, can be satisfied with the click of a button.

 

This series is about how technology has changed the way human beings express their sexuality.

This series is also about perspective.

Perspective 1:
“Selfies” an invention of the exhibitionists, allows one to show themselves from their own unique, unfetted perspective. The subject of the subject, they are sharing themselves by showing us what they see in the mirror.

Perspective 2:
“Voyeurs” an invention of the curious, the shy, the perverted. This perspective is at once closer, and farther away from it's subject. It is the viewpoint of the face in the crowd, the fan, the objectifier. They are sharing themselves by showing us what they see in their subject.

Public Displays Of Intimacy has allowed me to fulfill my objective of using only oils. In turn, I have had the opportunity to exercise a different technique, while enjoying the energy created by being abstract. With new tools, comes new talents, and while they form, I have been freed from expectation, and my own rigorous, compulsive perfection.

My artistry goal through this project, to paint looser but tighter. I searched for precision in the chaos, and found both drive, and impulse.

After coming down from the intense, and inspiring creative experience of being the Production Designer for the feature film, “The Red Man,” my education of seeing how dramatic lighting, frame and scenery can make or break a scene, has given me a renewed appreciation of context, and surroundings, which have also found their way into this series.

As such, Public Displays Of Intimacy is indebted to my experience on the Red Man film set, and for my new outlook on the themes, technology, and emotions that drive us to create, and drive us to share. It is both a blessing and curse to feel, experience and reflect so intense deeply and profoundly.

XOXO Erotica - Vancouver Wrap

Vancouver 

Vancouver 

That's a wrap!  DuJour Marketing and Lords of Gastown joined forces on September 21st to bring a night of art, love and the internet to Vancouver's Railtown district.  With the help of curator Fang Ling Lee and media sponsor Hush Magazine, the DuJour team was able to bring this erotic art exhibition and social media experience to life!

 

The focus of the night was philanthropy, with donations collected at the door going to support select women's shelters in the Downtown Eastside.  Hundreds of dollars were raised as we explored the concept of "Exploitation vs Empowerment".  Several pieces were sold throughout the night and one of the works even found a new home before the doors opened!  Featured artists - including Aaron White ,Rick LegalTerby WonderFred Fraser, and Mandy Tsung were on hand to cultivate a creative environment at XOXO Erotica with unique and varied mediums.

DuJour's Tita and Avery were heading up the social media aspect of the event and creating a buzz online and in house all night long.  An expanded conversation was made possible by many active participants from all over North America.  The success and excitement of the night was largely due to the solid support of our extended online audience, putting the Internet in "Art, Love and the Internet."

Team DuJour At: Exxxotica Fan Choice Awards

While you can catch Tita at many of the Exxxotica Conventions, the Fan Choice Awards at the April 2013 Atlantic City event was a special occasion. The Fannys are the adult industry’s premiere fan-chosen awards show and it immediately attracted great interest and attention from friends, fans, creators, and performers. The "Pink" Carpet hosted stars, celebrities, VIPs and of course Team DuJour!

We were also honoured to be attending in support of our client, artist and sculptor Fang Ling Lee. Shewas involved in every aspect of the awards creation, from conception, to sketching and molding, and finally to presenting the coveted trophy to industry heavyweights like James Deen and Lisa Anne.

The truth is, I want a reality show that follows these top 10 photographers around. I can imagine it would be an amazing show to watch. I had the privilege of sitting in on one single night with tmronin doing set after set in a row and the banter and photo sharing alone was just so damn fun. In the meantime, we can enjoy the show they put on for all of us with their amazing models on Zivity. We have 1,276 photographers on our site and that number just keeps growing.  If you are newer to the site, welcome to the family. If you've shot with one of these photographers, please go over to their walls and give them some huge love. If you are a fan of one of these photographers, please do the same. The site wouldn't exist at all without all of our wonderful photographers. Thank you for everything you do and for making the beautiful and sexy happen with your awesome models.

The Top 10 Photographers For 2012 By Number Of  Votes:

#1 tmronin wins by a landslide 18,115 votes. We don't have large enough photos of most of the photographers, so I included a lovely photo of his business partner Tita, which he took. I met Tita on their recent roadtrip where they promoted and did photo shoots of Zivity models from Vancouver all the way to Los Angeles. They recruited so many amazing models on that journey and produced so many cool videos. They are both truly wonderful. We had dinner and brainstormed all of the ways we can make Zivity even cooler. Tita is full of amazing ideas and Steve is just incredibly talented. The two of them just get Zivity inside and out and I'm stoked that not only is he the photographer of the year, he's also the top photographer of all time. You can find out more about their roadtrip here (btw, the videos rule!)
