This is a blog about a photographer, a personal favorite of mine, named Jan Saudek (pronounced yawn saw-deck). He is an artist from the Czech Republic and specializes in Hand Painted photographs, the majority of which he created using film through the mid 20th century. His images are generally composed of erotic nudes and seminudes muses, which sometimes border on pornographic imagery. Over time Saudek often re-creates his compositions presenting a transition from youth to adult. During the 90's his works were the focus of multiple attempts at censorship.
