101 Penis is finally getting off the ground!
Yes, the website http://101penis.com has already been up and running for a while, but I haven’t had the space to actually begin photographing and collecting stories for the 101 Penis book until NOW !
So, I am hereby announcing the first couple of dates for photo shoots for 101 Penis.
Please spread the word ! :)
Participants will need to:
1. Send me their message to be included in the book before they come to the photo shoot. This is just so that I don’t end up needing to chase people for their message down the track.
2. Sign a release form on the day of the shoot.
I have created Facebook events linked below that men can join and share, though joining the FB event is not necessary.
Below is are the details for the photo shoots as posted to the FB events also:
It begins !
First photo shoot for the 101 Penis project.
Tuesday evening 23rd April 5pm – 7pm.
Second photo shoot:
Thursday evening 25rd April 7pm – 9pm.
This is the companion project to the 101 Vagina project, the book of which was recently launched on the 22 March 2013.
See and buy the 101 Vagina book here: http://101vagina.com/
See also the 101 Penis Facebook page where other photo shoot events will also be posted: https://www.facebook.com/pages/101-Penis-The-taboo-smashing-coffee-table-book-project/314575851960096
So that this project does not take me another 2-3 years (like the 101 Vagina book did), I am organising a few times where a few men can come in at once for a shoot. The actual shoot will still be individual (one person in the studio at a time), but we can also have tea etc and sit around and share stories and talk about issues/experiences/thoughts/feelings if it works out that way.
The shoot will be at my studio in Brunwick, I will give address details individually as people confirm their attendance.
What I need from participants:
– You need to write and email me your “message to or from your penis to the world” BEFORE you come in for the photo shoot. This can be a statement, message, poem, story, or personal experience about/around your penis. This is your opportunity share a message about your penis with the world, a world which I believe misrepresents penises very profoudly.
– You will need to sign a release form on the day giving me the rights to publish the material.
Please email me, Philip, to confirm your participation and send me your message, or with any questions you may have at:
Please feel free to invite other men, but they will each need to confirm their attendance and get their message to me before the shoot. Note in particular that I am hoping to get diversity into the project, diversity of age, physical appearance, ethnicity etc. All men are welcome!
NOTE!!! PARTICIPATION IS ANONYMOUS. BY COMING IN TO THE SHOOT YOU ARE ALSO AGREEING NOT TO MENTION ANYONE ELSE’S PARTICIPATION TO ANY ONE ELSE WITHOUT THEIR EXPRESS PERMISSION.
If for any reason you are uncomfortable coming in for a shoot at the same time as other men we can arrange a time for you to come in individually.
I’m very much looking forward to seeing how this project evolves!
It has begun !
