Normally we associate Dan Wilton with the music industry. His bread and butter work involves trailing some of the most exciting new musicians across the globe and documenting their antics for us mere mortals to enjoy. When he’s not doing that you can invariably find him making normal people look exciting, turning football fans and Repton boxers alike into iconic individuals with the swift click of his shutter.
But Dan’s gone off-piste with his latest shoot, recreating the aesthetic of 1970s porno for the new issue of Vice. It features all the trademarks of pornography’s golden age; the dubious moustachioed gentleman caller, the Debbie Does Dallas white stetson, a liberal serving of male body hair – a far cry from the waxed chests of the modern age – and the all-important ecstatic close-up. To top it all off that nostalgic aesthetic of analogue smut has been preserved with real attention to detail, each image distorted with the streaked lines of a poorly-tuned VCR. Classic!
Dan’s work also features in the latest issue of Printed Pages, available here!
