A photograph with thoughtfull integrity, moody lighting and a certain atmosphere to it. It would be nice to see more spank orientated photographs that lean towards the arty side of things like this one.
Phil, if you’ve got it on your wall, do you happen to know what the photographer credit should be? This being one of those things I took off a website that got it god-knows-where, and I always prefer to credit origins when I can.
The name of the picture – or at least in the UK where I got a copy of it as a poster in 1997 was “Hard Lessons” by I think the initials were H.S. Something like Haim Stein – can anyone else shed light on this?
This is a pallid competitor to an uncharacteristic photo by softcore master David Hamilton that struck me as incredibly hot when I saw it (where? –wish I could remember) years ago: a rear view (what else?) of a girl upended over a wooden stool with her white tights yanked down by the crook of a cane, exposing her anus–which in Hamilton’s artful overexposure looked strikingly like a cervix. As I said, incredibly hot; if you can locate it for your followers here, various of us will be forever grateful.
It is a print by John Dietrich called Hard Lesson, now sadly unobtainable! I too had a copy of it at the top of my stairs for many years! Then when we moved it got consigned to the garage where it was promptly eaten by mice! Oh well, such is life!
