How many strings are attached to your sex life?
Birmingham, UK artist Helen Flanagan’s ongoing project, “No Strings Attached” is a photo series that captures a side of soliciting for sex online. Flanagan contacted people whose ads appeared on internet sex sites and convinced them to be photographed. Some of the subjects obscured their faces, others sat proud, expressionless, and at least one exposed himself like a man with nothing to lose. This project “aims to document an online world that revolves around sex”, Flanagan explains. “And looks deeper at current issues such as technology, modern human relations and sexuality.” There are obvious lines between prudishness, prostitution and no-strings-attached sex--Flanagan aims to squeeze in between these lines and find out more about modern sexuality, while delving into the human psyche. What she finds is something intimate, revealing and just a little bit heart breaking. See some of Helen Flanagan’s “No Strings Attached” series below.
