Intriguing Photographs of Porn Sets Without the Porn

ElizabethMoran_Photography

The Armory documents the ever-changing sets of the pornography company Kink.com. Private spaces are constructed for a public gaze and appear both familiar and strangely foreign. Devoid of people, the spaces allude to an activity, but leave the viewer to imagine the scene.

Kink.com was founded in 1997 by Peter Acworth while he was pursuing his PhD in finance at Columbia University. Today, Kink.com’s headquarters occupy the San Francisco Armory. Built by the United States National Guard in 1912, the Armory’s Drill Court became San Francisco’s primary sports venue for prizefights from the 1920s through 1940s. After falling into disrepair, the Armory was purchased by Kink.com in 2006 and is now one of the largest adult production studios in the world.—Elizabeth Moran

San Francisco-based photographer Elizabeth Moran provides quite an interesting look at space and context in this ongoing series. One can’t help but enjoy the irony captured in the lack of action in these spaces that normally get so much.
