On February 20th in Denver, CO, photographer Scott D. Barman, better known as HSYR, is revealing more than just those stunning and nude female & male forms you may be used to from him. He has a brand new exhibition ‘BEAUTIFUL PORNOGRAPHY‘ that is hot off the trails of his recent release ‘AN INTIMATE PORTRAYAL‘, his first book, or should we say first mini-book of portraits. At just 10 Pages the publication isn’t lengthy – 20 Portraits & 1 fine art print. But despite sexual prowess, length doesn’t matter when it comes to art series, the work and aesthetic does, and Barman definitely has it. In the artists own words:

My vision is to accentuate the natural form and beauty of women and men through the use of film photography and minimal interference portraiture. Finding inspiration through the everyday interactions of humans, blink-and-you-miss-it moments, and my own personal depression and anxiety, I explore who we are when we shed away who we try to be and what happens when more is spoken through our body language than through our words.

Originally from New York, he has been living in Denver, Colorado for the past five years creating photographic portraits of all those who enter into his life by chance. Though the aesthetic of Scott’s art has changed throughout the years, one detail has remained constant: His raw ability to honestly portray those who stand in front of the camera’s lens utilizing film photography. On February 20th, Scott plans to show us all once again why seeing is believing, and that we are so much more than what we see. His newest collection has grown into the body of work now known as BEAUTIFUL PORNOGRAPHY.
