Amsterdam-based photographers Blommers and Niels Schumm both studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and started working together in 1998. They operate in a zone between fashion, art and photography, with shifting perspectives, where images move back and forth between different meanings. In this shoot for Baron Magazine, Blommers and Schumm made normal objects appear erotic. ‘It’s nice that people think they are perverts, looking at these boring still lifes,’ they say.

The eroticism in Lynn Palewicz photographs are fraught with uncomfortable notions of possession and objectification — she often uses dolls in her work, making them look like real flesh and blood at times while also pulling the curtain aside with reminders of scale and contrasting skin and plastic textures. Her skin drawings create another set of illusions, implying pain and violence that intertwines with sexuality and the physicality of human bodies.
