Portrait photographer, designer & artist N. Maxwell Lander comes to the show to discuss his recently published book “Carnal Anomaly”, a fine art photography book that poses the question, what if the human body were an artifice, an artifact, or a tool? Brilliant color photographs re-envision the human body through stunning portrayals of fetish, BDSM, and body modification. Lander is joined by JP Robichaud, one of the models and muses of the book, and we discuss issues around violence, kink, and photographic depictions of our dark sides.

nml1N Maxwell Lander is a photographer, designer, and other-type-of-artist. He is an advocate of the Oxford Dictionary including “pig” as a classification of gender.  He remembers being told his first word was “chocolate” and that his first steps were taken in order to get closer to certain parts of Dolly Parton on a TV screen. He aspires to someday grow a beard (for man contouring) and hopes to use his newly acquired deep voice to become the fat guy in the dance music video that inserts the singer’s name into the beginning.

Over the last 15 years he has photographed the intimate sexuality of over 160 couples of all ages, body types, ethnicities, and sexual preferences, attempting to capture on film the honest emotions of people engaged in sex. We discuss his latest book, This Thing We Call Sex: A Radically Sensible Look at Sex in America, as well as how he became a publisher of artistic, imaginative sexual and erotic material, focused on offering sex-positive alternatives to the dominant sexual cultures of fear, denial, and moral judgment.
