Oh noes! What’s happening?! Have you googled the wrong website? Is NMHW now posting pictures of (half)naked… women?! Yes, today I am, for I have fallen deeply and utterly in love with Fucking New York and want to give this project my full support!

What is Fucking New York about? It’s about living in New York, having a connection – or actually a relationship – with the city and loving it so much you wonder what it would feel like to have sex with it. And so the question New York-based art and fashion photographer Nikola Tamindzic has asked the women he photographed for his project is this:

How would you fuck your city?

Fucking New York – Nikola Tamindzic

It all started out as a summer project on the Lower Eastside. After releasing the initial images in 2013, the positive reactions Tamindzic received from the media worldwide took the idea to a much bigger and better dimension.

“FUCKING NEW YORK brought together New Yorkers of all ages, shapes, sizes, social, and ethnic backgrounds. Those people brought the mix of intense carnality and playful humor I was looking for, and helped breathe life into FUCKING NEW YORK.” – Nikola Tamindzic

Candice Fortin: ‘Donald Trump can kiss my ass.’

Apart from simply being blown away by how good these photographs are, I love the naughtiness, the kink, the provocation and the fun that the women depict. I admire how brave they are to show themselves like this. Most of all, I see it as hard proof that women do not have to be sexually objectified in the usual, unnatural and sexist way to look extremely sexy, erotic and powerful.

Even though it is quite unlikely to encounter a woman showing her butt on top of a police car, press her breasts against the window or taking off her pants on a rooftop, it is somehow not unimaginable. Someone could be thinking about it, or even doing it… Somewhere around the corner there could be woman expressing herself, her lust, without holding herself back. That is the thrilling fantasy I get from looking at Tamindzic‘s work – Fucking New York inspires and wakes up the naughty girl inside me 😉

Have to think of Jim Morrison’s ‘Alive she cried’!

The people who have participated – models, activists, authors, performers, politicians – obviously added so much passion and conviction to the idea, that Fucking New York really has come alive. I feel it should not stop here. We should fuck all the cities we are in love with – and not just us women, you gorgeous men should be following in our footsteps!

Since Fucking New York had always been attended to become a book and therefore will not be digitalised, Tamindzic decided on using the Kickstarter platform as a means to help finance the best possible, high-quality print and making the book affordable for everyone. Please watch the following Fucking New York: book trailer video and let yourself be convincedI have pledged and am looking forward to my copy. Next step: Fucking Vienna!

throw yourself at the sidewalk and ugh, ugh, ohhh.”
