Some of you have doubtless noticed the sporadic nature of my postings on Plus of late.  There is a definite reason for this - I haven't been shooting nearly as much.  In 2014, I sustained a level 3 CA separation in my shoulder as a result of a fall (it's gotta happen some time in 20 years of tromping through ruins, but freelance artists get no health insurance).  My ~$900 tripod needs repair.  My car seems to break down every 5,000 miles or so.  Thus, I am launching a Patreon campaign in order to raise the funds needed to:

1) Rebuild my long-form blog, The Kingston Lounge.
2) Start a new, short-form blog, The Kingston Lounge Annex.
3) Head out on the road and shoot MUCH more this year.
and of course...
4) Get back to posting regularly on social media sites.

But I need your help!  Please consider making a small monthly donation.  There are all sorts of perks at different donation levels, and I'm sure there's something in your budget if the continuation of this project matters to you!  :)

Many thanks,
Ian

Greeting the day in an abandoned sanatorium.

Please note that if this sort of art is not to your taste, you may very easily uncircle me or hide the post.  Please be an adult here; this certainly conforms to the G+ policy on artistic nudity, but it's disheartening how many times I've had to deal with immature children flagging posts on here.  I hope, however, that this is not an issue and you enjoy my photograph!

I swung out for a while...

So I haven't made any new posts in over a month.  You may be asking "well why is that, Ian?"   I've basically spent two months on the road, shooting - making new photos like this one.  Expect to see many more in the coming days!

I agree with Karen - this has a lovely classical feel to it...

Whoa!  Clinton could have had relations with A TEENAGE STAFFER!
Read that headline. Now, read it again. Feel free to do a doubletake. Then consider something - that headline comes out as true under most interpretations, and thus cannot even approach the stan...

Hi Google+ - it's been a while!

Here's one from my latest photoshoot with model Jean Byron, in an abandoned tuberculosis sanatorium.

My account was just suspended for "pornography".

This is important, people.  For the last couple of days, my Google Plus account was suspended for "pornography", even though I have never posted a pornographic image in my life.  I post fine art nudes.  I am going to continue posting fine art nudes.  I am not going to stop posting fine art nudes.  So if you don't like fine art nudes, please unfollow me now.

I am saddened that some people who chose to follow me decided to flag my photography.  I am saddened even more by the fact that Google Plus temporarily suspended my account because they were unable to tell the difference.  I have been a member of this community for about three years, and have been posting nudes the entire time.  In fact, it was my "polemical argument about sexism" that went viral and led to a wider acceptance of nude art on Google Plus.

Simply put, I'm not going to stop.  But kindly grow up.  If you don't like my art, just unfollow me.  It's that easy.  And to those of you who've supported me over the years: thanks!  Although it's been sad to see the falloff in activity over here, I have much love for all of you.

The risk is that your photos are shared, and can potentially be on pornographic pages. 
It's these profils which in my opinion are targeted, and at that time G+ no longer make the difference in content.

Anyway I appreciate your work and I bring my support.

Restless Sleep

Okay, a second post today, just because Mr. +Ricardo Williams is clearly waiting by his computer for one to come down the stream.  ;)

Ms Meggo - the model in this photograph - is a total badass.  If that pose looks easy (or painless) in any way, go find a hospital bed and try it - seems like all that yoga has paid off!

For those that may be interested, I've recently released three new limited editions of some of my favorite staircase shots (larger at http://bit.ly/1oUGtwQ).  The editions of 10 are giant - 24x36" - signed and numbered on verso.  But the first impression in each - the (1/10) - is available on auction for cheap at eBay!  The link is here: http://bit.ly/1oUGtwQ - so if you're looking for some new art for your walls, this might be your chance!  And if not, but you'd like to help out - share this post so that more people have an opportunity to get in on the action.  :)

+Danny G - The morgue is a basically a standalone building, the Pathology Lab.  The padded rooms are in the Cheney building, the giant tower you can see from the road.
