Arnold Bocklin’s One Legged Boat

Arnold Bocklin’s One Legged Boat

by Alva Bernadine

Digital C Print

Alva Bernadine was born in Grenada, West Indies and moved to London at the age of 6. At the age of 10 he purchased a toy camera that took blurred pictures, some of which his mother still has in the family album.

 

At the age of 21 Alva began taking photography seriously. He began photographing London tourist spots and the next year he began practicing the style we see today.

 

Working mainly in the editorial field, Alva has photographed for numerous magazines such as Vogue, GQ, Elle, Sunday Times. In 1997 and ‘98 Bernadine was nominated as Erotic Photographer of the Year in Britain and eventually won the award in 2002 for his first book, Bernadinism, How to Dominate Men and Subjugate Women.

 

His work is unconventional, sometimes surreal and is very singular in style. It ranges from a classic use of perspective to experimental work using a sound-activated switch to capture action pictures of women’s arses being spanked. There is always an ‘event’ in the pictures, there is always a strange, surreal or quirky happening.
