Have you ever had sex in front of a camera? Do you like to watch yourself afterwards? Or is it just the feeling of being observed? In this erotic short film titled Nothing Personal, Paz de la Huerta is an image, a subject of adoration while she is slowly making love. She asks the camera: do you like my tits? and my face? my eyes?
This erotic short film was shot by Matt Black, a recognized Filmmaker and Creative Director who’s worked in fashion and art for years.
An erotic short film, or is it?
I love how this piece shows sex, but it’s not really about sex. It’s about how other people see us through our image, how we realize that there are very few people who actually care about us. We are all obsessed with image, with how the world perceives us, how it makes us fit in our groups and society in general.
Sex is also about image, sometimes. It’s not always about connecting and sharing something with someone, actually, it almost never is. Sometimes it’s about consuming the other person’s image.
On that philosophical note, I’ll leave you to it.
