About the presenter:
Michael Rosen, San Francisco’s foremost photographer of sexual art, has been creating erotic and sexually explicit work since 1977 - including stark nude landscapes, gritty images of S/M sex, and studio portraits and action photos involving BDSM, erotic piercings, gender play and “non-standard penetration”. His latest work comprises soft and romantic images of explicit sex that challenge the banality of pornography.
There are five monographs of Michael’s photographs: “Sexual Magic”, “Sexual Portraits”, “Sexual Art”, “Lust & Romance” and “Vanilla Sex”. He received a Venus Award from Good Vibrations in San Francisco and was nominated for an Erotic Oscar in London. He has had many one- and two- person shows and has been in many, many group shows, erotic art festivals and publications. Michael was just named a “Master of Erotic Art” by the Seattle Erotic Art Festival.
