Erin Albrecht took these photographs of me as part of a series she was working on with Billy Schultz on what I guess you could call composure and then overexertion, I don’t know what they wound up calling it; ironically these are part of the composed shots. Billy wound up training me later for the exertion part, he ran me around the neighborhood so I would schvitz and then gave me physical obstacles to overcome during the shoot to make me look spent, as in freshly fucked and nearly dead, both. The banner photograph is from this series.
Billy’s a performer and has been trained as a clown (in the sort avant-garde sense of clownhood) but he really could have moonlit as an Abu Ghraib torturer, I mean he had me destroying myself, performing twelve sets of kegels for a count of sixty, both navel and anal simultaneously! But seriously, Erin really is a just an exceptionally talented photographer. Check out some of her photographs here, or this feature in Vice a while ago.
