“urban LUSTer” came about in 2009 as a branding of artistic retouching that was applied to photography for Fuzzytek at that time. I was blending fashion photos and photos taken for a light fetish project that involved bondage.
You’ll find the images are layered – blending photos with graphics, and often saturated in color. Some will claim there is an inherent subjugation of the model, however the treatment to create an artistic work is the desired goal. In that sense of a completed work, lifting the subject in portrayal as an artistic endeavor.
Many of the images have been shelved for a while, but I may begin to generate more content soon. If you wish to reach me use the contact form or send an email to email@example.com. If you’d like to purchase a printed photo suitable for framing please contact and depending on the image I may be able to accommodate (remember some of these are older and sadly my photo archives have had problems, tens of thousands of original photos have been lost).
I’ve done a search on the internet and found the name was picked up by a craftsperson around 2012. The two instances are not related.
