Empty Porn Sets in pictures by Broughton

Empty Porn Sets in pictures:

It might not be the most obvious of subjects, but one british photographer decided to document the cheap shooting locations of adult movies

Jo Broughton, from Essex, began taking the pictures in 2001 while she was studying at the Royal College of Art.

She has taken a job as a cleaner at the porn studio to fund her education, and decided to start snapping once all the actors and crew had gone home for the day.

Capturing these elaborate sets emptied of their occupants. From the fake forest to the balloon jungle through the hospital room, Jo Broughton reveals the amazing, unusual and kitsches stage sets of the porn industry. A series to be compared with the photographs of Japanese Love Hotels by Misty Keasler.

Broughton said: “As a cleaner I saw the sets in the cold light of day and picking up and cleaning the mess was a bit like being in a crime scene“.

“Dealing with the inevitable bodily fluids made me feel my own humanity and then the vulnerability of the models who had performed for the camera that day.”

She continues: “I hid my association with the porn industry like a guilty secret but without it I may not have been able to realise my ambitions.

To this day I cannot say I am comfortable with the porn industry, but I do now realise that there are two sides to every coin, light and dark.

A good Christmas

 

Voyeurism aside, there’s a strong and pleasant energy in Broughton’s work. The eerie and unfamiliar stillness of the deserted sets is tangible, in stark contrast to the frenetic energy involved in the use of the set. In some of the shots, remnants of the day’s work remain, a bottle of lubricant, an adult magazine, a dildo or some strappy high heels, giving the photo series a rather hilarious bend.
