Bramley Apple - Violence works in both directions.

 Bramley Apple - Violence works in both directions


This is a project I carried out with my friend and favourite model Martina some months ago, between Italian lockdowns. 

Today, 25th of November, “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women” may be the best moment to publish it for the first time. 

I was trying to depict one of the possible outcomes of violence  on a woman: SHE MIGHT DECIDE TO FIGHT BACK! 

Surely not the best solution to the problem, but this might become one more reason to erase this sick attitude from the smaller male brains out there. 

If you respect women, also your life is going to improve... and you might survive to tell.

Not all women are like Desdemona!


I personally respect all my models as human beings, even before becoming my workmates, and I admire their courage for having chosen to display their nudity in such a dumb and prudish World, #BramleyApple would not exist without them.


I know this argument is much bigger than me, but the responsibility of an artist is to filter reality through his own sensibility to provide a powerful message, easy to understand by everybody.

If you think this approach is useful in any way, please consider sharing this project with your friends!

01 The door was open, and I found her like this, still staring at her wedding ring.



02 She must have took it off to wear the knuckle-dusters, before the fight.



03 When she saw me, the neighbour, she was still willing to fight, but realised I was a friend.



04 Then she started to remember.



05 She looked at her husband for the first time, unconscious but still alive.



06 We checked if she was all right.



07 Near the window where the light was better.



08 Front and back.



09 And cleaned her up to start a new life.


Bonus picture.

Bramley Apple - Show me your tongue piercing.

Bramley Apple - Show me your tongue piercing. 

My new favorite camera the Panasonic Lumix S1; my new favourite standard lens the Voigtlรคnder 58mm f1.4; my favourite muse. 
This is not the best backstage clip of the day, but let’s start gradually…
The room was ordinary, but the combination of model and equipment managed to inject some magic.
I love to work with Martina and in the backstage videos you can appreciate how we go on together whilst shooting and how she is gorgeous and professional.
If you’re interested in my photographic technique, have a look at the YouTube videos and I will try to explain why I chose this particular camera and lens combination. 
There is a lot going on with all these videos, and I’m not comfortable in making this kind of content, but I hope you can find them interesting.

Bramley Apple - Pictorialism.

Bramley Apple - Pictorialism. 

The way this Nikkor 135mm f2 DC renders is reminding me about David Hamilton’s style. Fortunately Shinrin was 19 yo when we met (nearly 20 as she said) and I was fully dressed throughout the shooting. 
I always liked Hamilton’s pictures, but my obsession for technical perfection risked to deny me the pastel color and soft focus he was so famous for.
It is thanks to this mythical lens that I had the chance to embrace this uncertain style, and I’m happy about the results, particularly on this specific young model.
in this occasion I was still working with the Sony A7, but I’m now sure the lens deserves to work in conjunction with the electronic viewfinder of the newest Lumix S1, an overall much better camera!
I will try to relax my obsession for perfection even more in the future, and I will keep trusting the 135mm DC rendition.

Bramley Apple - THE BET - 10 Maria’s Fantasy - Back End Service

Bramley Apple - THE BET 

My husband lost an important bet with 4 of his best friends and I was their prize.
During this weekend I had to stay completely naked at all times and satisfy all their needs and fantasies.
My husband was banned to come home until Monday.
My husband's friends did not want to appear in pictures, because they have a wife (and in some cases even children), but they did want to take pictures of me, to document the excesses of the Weekend and to further humiliate my husband!
This is the chronicle of a very special weekend, which I will never forget.
My husband was sure that each of his 4 friends would take advantage of me, also sexually, and he could not prevent it: the only condition he posed, was that I should not, in any case, have sex with more than one person at a time.
We did our best to respect this rule to the letter and we almost managed, at least until Sunday afternoon when they invited over other friends without my husband's knowledge.
At that point things got a little bit out of hand and we forgot about any rule...

10 Maria’s Fantasy - Back End Service

Now it was time for my own fantasy.
I never tried anal sex with my husband.
So I choose 3 of the most experienced men available in the room, asked to be tied up on the bed and told them to take care of my initiation in this dark art.

Bramley Apple - Light and stripes.

Bramley Apple - Light and stripes. 

I was passing through the corridor of this apartment borrowed from a friend of mine, and I saw this beautiful curtain, so I decided to put Mesca in front of it.
With the histogram facility and the modern sensor of the Lumix S1 it’s easy to master a backlit subject without additional fill up lights. 
Even the stripes are still visible on the fabric, making for a compelling composition.
The old Contax-Zeiss 85mm 2.8 lens made a fantastic job of keeping under control the harsh light coming directly from the window and kept a good contrast throughout the whole picture. 
B&W pictures with these old lenses are something to behold!
We just shot few frames before moving on to the next room, pity I forgot to turn Mesca around, so we’re missing her compelling butt in this sequence, but you will see plenty of that if you keep following #BramleyApple.
Only much later I discovered this was the bedroom of my friend’s mother, and I was not supposed to go in at all… particularly with a naked girl. 
Oops!

09 Daily Tasks - Welcoming New Friends

On Sunday afternoon the boys invited a lot of new friends, and my duty was to give a warm welcome to each and every one.
I lost count of how many took advantage of my mouth, but I’m pretty sure many came back for a second helping.
