Beauty is Truth; Truth Beauty



Homage to the beautiful in life. For some strange reason in our society violence, greed, bigotry and hate are perfectly ok, but not sex or nudity...at least that's what some would have us believe.

So, you are forewarned that there will be posts in this blog that will contain no violence, greed, bigotry or hate...also that some content (most?) will be NSFW, i.e. Not Safe For Work.

Sorry kids, if you're under 18 you'll have to leave the room.

Curious? Ask what you will....or comment. I will probably answer!

She’s the kind of girl a guy meets when he’s too young, and he fucks up because there’s too much living to do. But later he realizes she’s perfect.

The Story Of A Breakup Told Through Nude Portraits
From Nerve.com - March 26, 2014
21 year-old photographer Jordan Tiberio captured these intimate photos of a couple in their final months.

BY CAROLINE PERKINS
In dying relationships, there is often a palpable bittersweet undertone to everything the two of you do. Going out with friends, eating dinner together, even making love feels empty. These portraits, taken by photographer Jordan Tiberio, capture the feeling of isolation in togetherness that accompanies a young couple on the verge of a breakup. The effect is haunting, leaving the viewer with the distinct feeling of aloneness you get when your heart is breaking. The collection,“Two Souls,” was originally published in Upon Paper Magazine Issue #03: Lovers.
A message from Maris, the girl pictured:

“This is me. This is my ex-boyfriend Sam. He broke up with me on our one year anniversary. We lived together and I was left without a home and very much alone. We had been together for a year and we lived together for most of that year.  We went everywhere together, we smoked the same cigarettes, we slept in the same bed. It’s been almost four months since he broke up with me. It was so hard but it’s gotten easier. I moved back in with my parents and I just started dating a really great boy. These pictures are weird to look at.
I thought when Jordan took them that we were so in love, it had just been my birthday and everything felt right and I was so happy. I was so happy. It’s hard to see these because I know now that Sam wanted to break up with me at the time these were taken and I was oblivious. He was my first real love. We don’t talk any more. I thought we could be friends but for whatever reasons, he stopped answering my messages and I stopped trying. But you know what? These pictures are special. They are real, tangible representation of something that changed my life and changed me for the better. I love you, Jordan, for taking these. Thank you.”
