Skin Clicks: porn photography 3

Ken Probst

Ken Probst got smitten with his subject matter of photographing the non-glossy bits of gay porn, when he was asked to participate in a nationwide project entitled A Day in the Life of Gay and Lesbian America. It led to freelance work as a photographer for porn publicity pictures and video boxes. He took advantage of being able to access all areas of the porn set and started capturing all the bits you aren’t supposed to see. Now compiled into a book called por ne-graf'ik, his beautiful black and white photos capture the absurdity and mundaneness that goes on behind the scenes. In one, make-up artist “Brian” is caught mid-touch-up powdering “Jeff’s” balls, in another a gay-for-pay male pornstar is seen preparing for his scene by jerking off to Penthouse.
