In March 2011, independent book publishers Self Publish, Be Happy put out a call for "naughty pictures" and in response received over 5000 photographs. A new book, Self Publish, Be Naughty, showcases 122 of these photographs by 75 different artists. The photographs, presented in a continuous flux, offer a powerful and uncompromising exploration of contemporary approaches to the themes of sex, desires and taboos within photography. From the surreal to the mundane, from the allusive to the graphic, the images challenge the tradition of erotic photobooks and their very ghettoised approach to desires.
