Jonny Sutton Explores Intimate Memories in his Latest Series

Jonny Sutton's latest series, 'Remains' and 'Pornography,' explore memories of sexual experiences. In fact, the photos look like what a memory might feel like: cloudy, incoherent and jumbled, although in a distinctly cinematic manner.

Many of Sutton's photos deal with the aftermath of erotic encounters. By photographing what is left behind -- a pair of underwear thoughtlessly discarded, stained sheets or a post-sex tub of ice cream and two spoons -- Sutton examines the relationship sex has with its surroundings.

Meanwhile, the photos in 'Pornography' feature a barbie doll whose body is manipulated in subtly sexual ways. The prop is obviously used to represent the female form, but the fact that Sutton chose to use a child's toy to do so is significant. Namely, it speaks to the concept of lost innocence.
