My images are being used in this month’s edition of Forum (The International Journal of Human Relations) to illustrate an article about the gorgeous Madam Divine. Forum is available from the top shelf of all good newsagents and is also available online http://www.ukforum.co.uk/index.aspx
September’s edition of Jade magazine features a splendid eleven page portfolio of my work to celebrate my being their awarded ‘Erotic Artist of the Year’. Some of the images in the portfolio are featured below but there are more, ‘naughtier’ images that don’t even appear on my website so if you want to see them you’ll just have to get a copy of Jade (or subscribe). Jade is available from http://www.greatnorthernpublishing.co.uk/jade.html.
Here’s news of an exhibition featuring my images that’s closer to ‘home’ (for some of you at least)… in Milton Keynes. ENLIGHTENMENT is an exhibition of work and workshops by ’The Association of Erotic Artists’. This is your chance to see work by some of the world’s leading erotic artists.
’The Association of Erotic Artists’ is set to embark upon an evangelical mission of ENLIGHTENMENT of which this exhibition is but a start. We seek to challenge society’s bigoted and misguided opinions of the nature, relevance and standing of erotic art and make a stand against social, political and religious condemnation.
A range of my UV images will be on display both as limited edition fine-art prints and as projections.
It is with great pride that I announce that I have been chosen as JADE magazine‘s Erotic Artist of the Year 2009. I will be the first ever recipient of the new JADE award – a specially commissioned white kneeling nude figure by leading master sculptor Ken Clarke – which will be presented at the Guild of Erotic Artists Event Day on 20th September at Beaumont Hall Studios, St Albans.
If any of you would like to pop along on the day it would be lovely to see you, you don’t have to be a member to attend and full details are available on the Guild’s website.
This month’s (August – Issue 57) Jade contains an article about the lovely model Capricorn Moon featuring several of my images and next month’s edition will contain a portfolio of my images. Here’s what Jade magazine had to say about my work:
“We can think of no more deserving recipient of this year’s award than photo-artist Robert Babylon, whose work has developed and improved over the last few years and whose quality is always first class. His rich, artistic vision pushes at the boundaries of erotic art and explores the subject with a passion and skill which singles him out as a leader in the field, taking on new challenges and creating new works of art that set themselves apart from the mainstream. It is our hope that this award reflects the high regard in which this artist is held and that it will be just one of many he will receive throughout his career.”
Just to let you know that I am featured as guest artist in this month’s issue of Scarlet magazine. There are 10 pages including the cover of the Cliterature supplement featuring my images, and an interview where you can find out my top tip for seducing someone!

I have just finished a series of catalogue photoshoots for www.rubberluv.co.uk and although I don’t usually make my commercial work the subject of my update news I’m doing so here for a number of reasons. Firstly I am proud of the images, secondly because the clothes are beautifully designed and made; and finally because they are friends.
