Is porno-chic the new black?

"Currently there is a three–year research project going on at The University of Auckland to examine the broader effects of pornography on New Zealand society. Pornography has always been with us you could argue, so why the fuss now? One reason is the growth of the internet. Pornographic imagery is just a click away. Gonzo porn, where there is aggression directed at women, is the growth area in this multi–billion dollar industry. Question its prevalence, and you run the risk of being considered a prude in today's climate of liberal tolerance–very uncool.

It's supposed to be empowering for women to be sexual in their behaviour and dress. We are sold 'technologies of sexiness' wrapped up in the rhetoric of individual consumer choice. To be 'hot' is the aim of every pimply tween, male or female, and that means trying to refashion yourself into a porn body. Desperate effort goes into maintaining sexual currency as age takes its toll."

Peter Bannan: director + photographer

"After gaining a degree in Fine Arts at Canterbury University in the mid seventies, majoring in European Film, Peter went on to make his name as a fashion photographer, shooting fashion for designers, catalogues and magazines both in New Zealand and off shore.

Ten years ago he co–founded his Auckland based film company Bannan Films and now after relocating to Singapore in 2008 is primarily directing commercials as a freelancer.

His fashion background gives his commercials a beautiful, visually unique style, while his cinema interests bring subtle, often quirky humour with strong characters and captivating storytelling. Peter has a relaxed, calm demeanor, which allows him to work well with babies & children, this also obviously comes from the experience he has had with his own three children."

Onscreen discussion of the ontology of the photographic image

"The film commences with a fast moving introduction to the very stylish world of a hot fashion photographer, Thomas, played by that emblematic '60s actor, David Hemmings. This is the world made notorious by magazines like Tatler and Queen as well as all the tabloids of the world, all Pucci fashion, dolly birds (Jane Birkin made her name in this film), drugs, fast cars and rock–and–roll. ...

Throughout Blow Out and Blowup there is always a sense in which recording media themselves are seen as, somehow, treacherous. Antonioni's Blowup forcefully reminds us that even the latest technologies can mislead or betray us. In the computer age, it this remaining element of ontological uncertainty that still troubles the human observer–for we are not, quite yet, masters of information"
