Photographer-Publisher Celebrating the Female Form Rather Than Hardcore
VENICE, CA – Lincoln Mark Lease, the one-man show behind Black Label Magazine, is trying to keep alive a corner of the adult market that has been left behind with the deluge of hardcore over recent years and he’s penned an article for AVN.com that makes a strong case.
Lincoln is trying to bring more attention to artcore; the idea, he writes, is that “to create imagery—whether in still or video—that crafts the beginning of a narrative; these are pieces of work that are meant to be studied, absorbed, and allow you to unleash your erotic imaginings.”
“What is bold now, and definitely more of a challenge, is to depict and convey the idea of eroticism and sensuality rather than to graphically depict the act itself,” Lincoln writes on AVN.com. “There is something to be said for leaving something to the imagination. Over proliferation of porn has made us lazy. We don’t actually fantasize anymore. Instead we watch the fantasies of someone else play out and allow that to be implanted in our brains, claiming it as ours.”
Black Label Magazine just published its tenth issue – Issue X: The Decadent Issue – which features Darcie Dolce on the cover as well as in a stunning 24-page spread. The issue, which is 120 pages, also features half a dozen other models: Darcie Dolce, Verronica Kirei, Dasha U, Juliette Jadot, Sophia Depoorter, Dane Halo and Willow Marie Lane.
The limited-edition print edition of the magazine, 9.5” x 12”, printed on gorgeous glossy cover, thick pages and elegant packaging, was just made available. It comes with digital access/download to both the .pdf issue and Darcie’s video “The Spinner.” Standard unsigned prints are also available now, too, selling for $32.99 to $50.
