Show runs November 13, 2008 – December 11, 2008
Reception November 13, 2008 from 7-10p at the Center for Sex and Culture
FP Edge is pleased to announce the photography of Ellen Stagg. The eroticism captured in Stagg's photography celebrates the beauty of exhibitionism as translated through the female form. Her provocative modern work is an exciting and arousing combination of contemporary art and fetish photography. Stagg impeccably displays her devotion to redefining the erotic by blurring the lines between sexuality, public nudity, erotica and pornography.
Stagg has been a photographer since the age of sixteen. Since then she's been in love with and began to study photography. She moved to NYC in 1996 from Connecticut and attended the School of Visual Arts where she received her BFA in photography. In her 9-year career as a professional photographer, Ellen has worked in advertising, fashion and portraiture, shooting for all kinds of magazines look books, stock photography, and celebrities. When not shooting commercial photography, she shoots erotic photos and has been shooting erotic photography since she began to use the camera. Her work has been described as too "artsy" for porn mags and too "porny" for commercial work, so she has since posted most of her photos on blog StaggStreet.com as an outlet for this work.
FP Edge proudly invites you to share and discover the exceptional talent of Ellen Stagg's photography. Join us for the opening reception at Center for Sex and Culture on November 13, 2008 from 7-10p. The show runs November 13, 2008 – December 11, 2008 at the Center For Sex and Culture at 1516 Mission St., San Francisco, CA 94103
