When someone introduces themselves as a “professional dick photographer,” it’s easy to become immediately suspicious of his or her intentions; however, it turns out the title is a legitimate occupation, and not just some bizarre ruse to check out male genitalia. At least we hope it’s not.
Meet Soraya Doolbaz, a New York-based creative who is making a name for herself with Dicture Gallery—a project that puts a “high fashion” twist on the art of dick pics. How does she do it? Well, she basically dresses up dudes’ penises in doll-like clothes and photographs them in the hopes of capturing the dicks’ personalities. Sounds crazy, but the idea has proven to be a success.
In the video above, Doolbaz talks about the evolution of Dicture Gallery, and how it’s been so well-recieved. She even exhibited her photos at Art Basel Miami last year, where she got the opportunity to show off her work to a much larger audience.
“Two years ago, when I took my first dick pic, I never thought I’d be here today,” she explains in the New York Post video, “selling limited edition prints in Miami for $10,000 a piece, and having a product line that includes adult novelty items like calendars and mugs. It’s surprising and very delightful that people just like dick on things.”
