MOREPIXX? - International gay fetish photo competition
15 January 2019
Here at Recon we're big fans of seeing fetish and kink in works of art – especially in photography – that's why we're proud to sponsor the MOREPIXX? International gay fetish photo competition, taking place at Leather & Fetish Pride Belgium.
In its third year, MOREPIXX? – which takes its name from the regularly asked question on gay apps - is a competition that's open to all professional and non-professional photographers. Organiser Taco D Smit tells us that the inspiration for the competition came from a similar event that was held by Leather Friends Italy, that sadly no longer takes place. After he won that competition twice, he felt that it would be great to keep running such a platform for other fetish photographers.
When it comes to fetish as the subject of a photograph, Taco says 'I think a lot of fetish is in the feeling, seeing and smelling. Images can inspire people and take them on a journey. Very often a viewer makes his own story about what he sees in the picture.' He believes that fetish photography can be evocative and inspiring, and we fully agree.
The 15 finalist images will be displayed at Darklands from 22 – 24 February, during Leather & Fetish Pride Belgium. You can see the nominated images now using the link below, and vote for your two favourite photographers. The winners of the different prizes will be announced on Sunday 24 February. The exhibition will then tour various global fetish events including IML, Amsterdam Gay Pride and Folsom Berlin. We will also be featuring some of the works in the Recon booth during Leather & Fetish Pride.
