Albert Pocej latest project is one that’s bound tailor-made for creating headlines: 15 women photographed orgasming in the name of art.
The Lithuanian photographer came up with the idea to “capture the moment of women reaching the highest point of physical pleasure”. The results are a dozen classy black and white photos of various ‘oh faces’ from the participating models.
“I simply woke up and I knew I just had to do it. So I tried to explore the female orgasm through a photography experiment,” Pocej wrote on Facebook.
“At first I thought it would be impossible. Finding the models was the most difficult part. I started to write to everybody I know without any boundaries since all the women are so different.
“The answers I got were mostly two kinds: ‘I don’t have enough courage’, and just the silence, which is also pretty obvious as an answer.
“When I finally found 20 women that were ready to take part in this project, some of them refused to continue when I told them that it will not be acting, and some of them weren’t able to relax already while shooting. So at the end there were only 15 left.”
