And, I DO NOT MEAN BREAST CANCER AWARENESS!  Pink is the color of unconditional love and nurturing, or so it is said. It has perpetually been associated with femininity, warmth, intuition and calm.  And it has been hi-jacked by breast cancer organizations as a metaphor and changed the conversation from romance to money.

Black and White photography takes intimate perspective to a whole other level.  Void of color, the subject is seen in a landscape of light and shadows. The images project the essence of the product. Above Noe Intimates and below KISSKILL Lingerie   are examples.  Intimate shots of women in their private moments prove the power of expression wrought by beautiful form.See More in our Pinterest and Instagram pages
