Welcome to the website of London based surrealist erotic photographer and film maker Marc Blackie.
Under the banner of “Disappointed Virginity”, Marc Blackie has created for himself a self contained monochrome world. Herein he explores his sexually charged mindscapes via the mediums of photography, short film and animation, exploring the nature of eroticism and picking away at the sinister underbelly of desire.
Each of his still or moving pieces convey their own individual narrative yet also exist entirely in context within this world, in what he describes as “A blend of the erotic, the surreal and the anhedonic.
Citing influences from such figures as Hans Bellmer, Koji Wakamatsu and Georges Bataille, drawing comparissons to Maya Deren, Richard Kern and Joel Peter Witkin and with an (un)healthy dose of pornographic imagery, his highly stylized and unique work is simultaneously laced with a certain dark humour and a queasily unnerving quality.
I now have a selection of prints available for purchase via Pay Pal in a size of 18″ x 12″. Other prints and sizes are available, please get in touch via the contact form if you would like to purchase another image in another size. Prints are all signed and I aim to have orders [...]
You wait 15 years for your work to be shown in Germany and then two film festivals come along at once. “First Personal Plural” will be showing at the Fetisch Film Festival Germany Saturday November 30, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. in Traum-Kino in Kiel. This comes just over a month after several screenings at the [...]
First Person Plural, my 2013 short film with Maya Hommerton is to be screening several times at this years Berlin Porn Film Festival, October 23 to October 27. I’m not going to be able to make it across for any of the screenings due to other commitments here in the UK, but will be very [...]
So that was Paris. The opening night of the exhibition went very well, the champagne flowed with gay abandon and I confirmed what I had long since suspected: the French enjoy my work a lot more than the Brits. The exhibition is running until late October I believe, with more information available here: http://nuegalerie.com/ My [...]
Shot over two days with Portia Victoria and then agonized over during a lengthy editing period (my other recent short film “Fantasy Reconstituted” was shot and edited in between “Performance & Appreciation”‘s filming and it’s completion), this film closely ties together the audio and visual aspect of my filmic work, containing piano and vocal recorded [...]
I will be exhibiting a small selection of large format prints at new Parisian Gallery “Nue” from September 13th, sponsered by Mis en Cage. Also showing will be Martial Lenoir, Borys Makary and Michelle Brea. NUE is the new gallery on the outskirts of Paris, Pantin. This is the ground floor of an old red [...]
I had the initial ideas for this film along time ago, before the filming of my first short film “Comfort Eating” and had the shoot booked and ready to go with a particular model. Unfortunately for the project, she had an early delivery (all was well though) and after a brief search for a replacement [...]
First film to be completed at my new location in Stoke Newington, Amylase Miscellanea, was filmed across one Friday afternoon with editing taking place in stolen moments and sleepless nights the following week. By far the most challenging part of this production was the blowing up of the paddling pool, which I really couldn’t be [...]
Two new mutoscope animations have been added to the Animation section of the website, available HERE One of the first things that occurred to me when I began making films was the obvious, yet to me unexpected, need to rotate your way of thinking by 90 degrees. I had always shot my photos in a [...]
I’ve recently worked with Icelandic model Tindra Frost and if any proof of this should be required then here are a few of the results from the shoot: We have also discussed the possibility of collaborating on a short film in the future, more news as and when.
