A self taught photo artist with an eye for the beauty of the female body. I'm Nora Ness, born in germany but living in the states for some years now. Ever since I can remember I've been attracted by the naked female. My self performance, created in front of a mirror, seeks to capture true erotic moments and passion, and catch the eye of those who aren't ashamed to look.

In my opinion this is the most important reason why erotic art hasn't yet found its place in the art scene.
But things are improving. Increasing interest in my own work is showing this. My art is like a series of scientific experiments; each image has to be planned very thoroughly, and yet the outcome is always unknown.…Read More
