FUCKING NEW YORK:
PREORDER THE BOOK ON MAY 16

 
Sometimes you just want to grab hold of those buildings, throw yourself at the sidewalk and ugh, ugh, ohhh. Photographer Nikola Tamindzic’s newest project Fucking New York is about fucking New York, that powerful appreciation for whatever it is that makes you tolerate this city’s many flaws and fuck-ups, that love manifesting itself physically as a series of poised sexual abstractions. It helps that Nikola’s photos are always beautiful. He makes pressing your breasts at a window look eloquent, enchanting. Hmm. Hmmmm. Hmmmmmm.
Animal New York
 
 
In his latest book, Fucking New York, Nikola Tamindzic ponders whether a New Yorker’s love for the City is the most important relationship in his or her life, asking the question to the point of absurdity: What would screwing New York City actually look like? The project evolved into distant, almost architectural, slightly removed from reality, though quietly sensual photographs — their flow broken up by in-your-face closeups and an occasional overtly humorous shot. The uncanny/unreal city feeling the images evoke are reminiscent of surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico’s plazas, punctuated with Lynchian humor.

A selection of works from FUCKING NEW YORK:

 
If you’re open to brilliant composition within seemingly impossible New York landscapes, with beautiful women who each volunteered to playfully take the city on as their own, in their own way, and yes, in front of your gaze, the voyeur, then you will love this. It’s absolutely liberating. I started off thinking of this body of work as a bit sexist but have come to admire and revel in its strength. Women being pervs—in such a painterly and glorious way. It’s controversial, and that’s what makes these images so damn good. You like them even if it goes against what you think women should do, or be, or whatever issues you have.
