I”m proud to announce the Light Eros Muse Photography Arts Conference aka- LEMPACON; a three day event in NYC on October 4th, 5th, and 6th catering to erotic, fetish and fine art nude photography genre. Read all the details below and come out to support this conference on her maiden voyage, it’s going to have the stopping power of .357 magnum and blow you away…
The LEMPA Conference mission is to elevate erotic and fine art nude photography by presenting the subject matter in a responsible and ethical manner.
Too often this subject matter has been associated with taboo and has been shunned by mainstream society and media as a result. LEMPA seeks to rectify this by giving leading photographers and models working in the genre, a platform to showcase their process and work while establishing a benchmark definition of the best practices while addressing the photographer-model issues of the #metoo age.
The founder of LEMPA, Photographer David Brommer combines his expertise in producing conferences with his history of running the maverick Seattle gallery, Suspect Photography in the 1990’s. He states, “There isn’t any conference like LEMPA, this genre needs to be brought forward and I curated the speakers to reflect the many facets of this genre”.
