Highlighting the internal experiences of intimacy.

In her new series Wonderlust, photographer and graphic designer Sarah Anne Johnson set out to properly portray the look and feel of sexual intimacy. After years of photographing sexual encounters, she felt her work was only portraying half of the story — the external view. But Johnson wasn't trying to photograph porn, or even beautiful moments of intimacy, she wanted to properly reveal the internal experience the body goes through during sex.

Metallic prints, explosions of gold dust, splatter paint, and even giant smiley face emoticons were placed on areas of the couple's nude bodies to highlight the areas of arousal. The digital adjustments cover the wide range of pleasure one feels during intimacy. Some are mild, like a glow of light on the neck or hands, which are tools we use during light moments of foreplay or oral pleasure. Other manipulations take over the individual's entire body to signify a complete sensory overload from an orgasm. 

Here's a look into Wonderlust, on exhibit at the Stephen Bulger Gallery March 1 – March 29, 2014. The following images are NSFW.
