Orgasmic Beauty

Photographer Petr Jedinak spent three years shooting the Orgasmic Portrait series that encompasses several hundred works. 

“My main drive was to shed light on a mystery. The female orgasm is mysterious to me, because I will never experience it. When I shoot it, I get to touch something volatile.”

He chose to eternalize the moment using a rare 19th century technique:

“Wet plate collodion only allows me to make a single original, no copy or retouch. The very silver layer that witnessed the moment remains fixed to a glass plate. In essence, I create a magical fetish out of that moment. I do it in order to bring back the mystery that has been lost in age of digital photography.”
