Kelly Clipperton, a photographer based in Toronto, stuns and intrigues viewers with his racy, intimate and carnal images.

A spontaneous hair appointment led me into the brilliant and sunshiney apartment of Kelly Clipperton; hairdresser by day and photographer and music-maker by night. I inquired to one of the photos hanging in his apartment and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was his.

His photos come to life with a raw sexuality and entrance the viewer with a feeling of slight voyeurism; who is watching, and who is being watched?
Toying with sexual and gender identities, Kelly photos beguile and enforce controversial opinions on both political and societal ambiguities concerning the LGBT community.

Kelly iterates on his personal website:

“I’ve spent much of my life trying to figure out how I fit into the pastiche of socialization and creativity. In this ever increasingly detached world, I search for community and a sense of belonging even more than in my youth. That effortless fit into your tribe.”

Going on to describe his photographs as:

“[...] an extension of my need for order and an expression of want for togetherness. Uniforms, resemblance, balance… In each image there is a slight element of distress, which enhances the notion that no matter what goes wrong, continuity will pull you through. In my darkest of dark places I see the simplicity of uniform to be lifesaving.”

His most recent music video, which he sings and directs, deals directly with such topics:

Your idea is important; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  • electronic cigarette cartridges

    Although I am using them as partial replacement for the time being, I have already reduced my cigarette intake from 25 per day down to around 5 without any feeling of deprivation or the depression which always prompted my return to cigarettes when using other replacement therapy – and I have used a lot!

    What a great blog. I spend days on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an amazing post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.

    PlayStation Phone – No internal memory? That seems kind of weird since I doubt this thing will use UMD. Also, isn’t the PSP2 coming out next year? Will they make a PSP Phone 2? I’m kind of skeptical on this one. well, i can’t edit…but i wanted to add this. i wont be surprised if sony adds some type of adapter add on to the PS3 (something to support the IR blasters, and maybe a small unit within that add on that has more RAM) so it can support google tv. It would make so much sense for sony to be even more of a presence in the living room, other than what the ps3 can already do. If google tv ends up working out all the kinks, and getting better…i wouldn’t be surprised. On top of that being a selling point (a huge one) over the Wii and similar to the Xbox integration w/ att uverse, you’d be able to get the PSP phone and the ps3 to work all buddy buddy together. the possibilities are endless if you ask me. This would be called product synergy sony…listen to me

    Surprisingly! It’s like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, besides that, this is informative blog. A wonderful read. I will definitely return again.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
