Visual Pleasures: Fucking New York, by Nikola Tamindzic

You: scantily clad or perhaps… naked. You’re in the mood. The setting: New York City. But you’re not going to seduce New York — you’re going to fuck it. Fucking New York is a photography book by well-known New York City art and fashion photographer Nikola Tamindzic that is all about what it’s like for New York women to be in an intimate relationship with the city. New York is one of those places that consumes us, so why not take a gander at what sex with this beautiful city looks like, feels like? How would you fuck it?

Now for all of you thinking that this book exploits women, fear not: Fucking New York is all about taking a deeper look at a woman’s sexual agency. We as women are allowed to seek out and experience life and pleasure on our own terms. Nikola captures his subjects to perfection and seemingly has the feeling that Nikola is simply an observer. His subjects allow themselves to lose control, and somehow make humping concrete look chic.

At first, the project was featured on Kickstarter. And within six days, the Internet’s demand spoke volumes — Fucking New York reached its financial goal. Why a book and not digital? A photo or art piece resonates with the onlooker in a deeper, more personal tone. Time moves differently as one looks to each image, pause and admire the details. But most interestingly, who were the women that were captured under Nikola’s lens? A bunch of successful writers, politicians and actors that can’t be controlled, that’s who.

Consisting of sensual photographs that range to the occasional humor shots, there is this surreal city feeling that each image projects that celebrate sexual freedom. In all, Nikola’s ability to disarm both the subject and the viewer can’t be ignored. Fucking New York is available for purchase in December 2016 on their website, fuckingnewyork.com
