The romantic atmosphere displayed in the erotic art of Luis Durante finds its inspiration in great masters like Gustav Klimt and the Spanish background of the photographer.
His muse is a Spanish girl that is displayed in almost all his work. The love for her nude body and classical looks in combination with the old painting style technique is giving his photo’s a great personal expression. They could be a modern variant of old masterpieces like the Danae ( erotic painting of Gustav Klimt ) or the Greek Venus statues.
However Luis Durante goes beyond the classics by adding some fetish to his images. The Bondage serie is a good example of this concept. An other deference is that some of the images are containing explicit content, like playing with dildo’s, pissing and that kind of stuff. Call me romantic, but I like the classic poses the most. Especial the ones with the old painting style touch. Because in my opinion the model and the the photographer’s background are fitting together perfectly.
