Sydney 101 Penis shoot !

Finally I am going to do some photos in Sydney for the 101 Penis project!

I will be in Sydney from 25 Nov – 5 Dec. That’s NEXT WEEK!!! and the week after.

There will be perhaps 2 or 3 sessions I will arrange where everyone can come in at once (still private one on one sessions for the photos) though I will also be available to do private shoots if you either can’t make it during those times or you are concerned about anonymity or you simply feel shy or vulnerable. I want to accommodate everyone who wants to participate.

The shoots are likely to take place around the inner West.

If you’re interested in participating please reply to this email letting me know what times would generally be best for you (weekday evening? weekend morning? etc) so I can arrange some times that suit most people.

Also, please start working on your message for the book, which I need you to email to me BEFORE you come in for the shoot. This can be:

  • between a word and a page long
  • poetic or prose or any other style
  • silly or serious, irreverent or reverent
  • sharing a personal experience around your penis that shaped your relationship with it
  • feelings, thoughts, philosophical or spiritual standpoint, etc.

Please take some time to consider your words. Imagine people reading them in a gallery or in the book. Perhaps a teenager, growing up and dealing with the confusion our society currently has around sexuality and our bodies. Perhaps an elderly person who has never felt permission to openly talk about these issues for their entire life. Perhaps a lover, perhaps even a hater.

Don’t let this restrict you in any way, but let it expand you. I want the book to reflect the vast breadth of experience, rather than the narrow views that the mainstream promulgates. See if you can find an edge somewhere. If you’re afraid of saying something then that might be a good place to start, or if you just want to make a wisecrack then that’s ok too :) I want to create a space of permission.

As with the messages, I really want to get as much diversity into the book in terms of physical appearance also. Please don’t let any doubts or shame or discomfort you have with your body in general or penis in particular prevent you from participating. You are welcome and needed :)

Since this is a project that will be published as a book etc I also need participants to sign a standard copyright release form. This is a standard model release form I downloaded from the RMIT university website.

 

Ok, looking forward to hearing from you all :)

Peace,
Philip

Media Release: 101 Penis project seeking participants

Following on from the huge success of the recent 101 Vagina Book Exhibition as part of the Sydney Fringe and Melbourne Fringe, photographer Philip Werner is now gearing up to begin working on the next project, 101 Penis.

As with 101 Vagina, the 101 Penis coffee-table book will comprise 101 nude photos of the pubic area, along with a message written by each participant.

The aim of the projects to break down the taboo around our genitals and sexuality, generate debate, and help everyone feel more comfortable with themselves.

The feedback from the 101 Vagina exhibition was heartfelt and overwhelmingly positive. “Most people report that they find it confronting, but in a way that allows them to open, rather than closing them down.” Werner says.

“We tend to be more aware of women’s body image issues because they get more airtime in the media, but I believe penises are surrounded by just as much of a taboo as vaginas. The only issues the media talks about about is size and performance, but I believe that men’s relationship with their penises is much more nuanced than that.”

“The penis is the exposed tip of the heart.” James Broughton

Participation is on a voluntary basis and the men are asked to write a “message from or about their penis to the world” before the shoot. The message will accompany each photo in the book and subsequent exhibitions. Werner is seeking men of all shapes, ages, sizes and colours, everyone is welcome. The aim is to have the broadest range of men represented as possible.

Photographic shoots will be done in Melbourne and Sydney over the coming weeks and people interested in participating can get in touch via email or check the website for more details.
