John Harte: 'different' photography

Photography: John Harte

I know a lot of you don't like the unrealistic, touched-up Playboy style glamour photography that's out there today. All the airbrushing sometimes makes it hard to know what is real and what isn't. I am not saying John Harte isn't manipulating his photos, but they are different from mainstream photography. Rather crazy I must say. And that I like!

John regularly exhibits his images throughout Japan where he now lives (he was born and raised in Australia), and occasionally overseas. He has 4 books of his photos published.

Check out his photos on his flickr site, his official website or his MySpace. And of course he also blogs.

This photographer's work is very interesting and fun - quite refreshing!

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Jan 25, 07 | 10:04 pm

I like this stuff. Edgy and modern. Looks like cross processing film but its probably all photoshop. In any case it really stands out.

I saw a nice poto site today but I dont know how to post the link. Check out Kaori at

Kaori is the model in the BW photo on the first page. (first page today anyway). Also in the nudes category.

Posted by: redlaw on Jan 26, 07 | 2:02 am

Thanks redlaw! Although the photography at MyPrivateTokyo isn't really to my taste (for example, I really think black and white is seriously overused these days, and inappropriate here), Kaori looks very cute indeed! Do you know if we can see her galleries elsewhere?

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Jan 26, 07 | 2:25 am

Well we will have to agree to disagree on Black and White. I love looking at it and working with it. But as for Kaori, I am not positive but I think if you look at the AS post on Nobuyoshi Araki, (please help me with the hyperlink) she is in the montage of photos in the center picture.

If anyone else knows more of her, please let me know.

She is in several of the galleries on the MyPrivateTokyo site.

Thanks redlaw - I fixed your links.

Do you think this might be Kaori here? Whatever the case, she's a real cutie! Looks like a job for the Google master. ;-)

Could be. The chase is on!

Posted by: redlaw on Jan 26, 07 | 3:24 am

the girl on the bottom left looks like psycho mantis from msg!

Posted by: Asiandreamland on Jan 26, 07 | 4:06 am

i like the bottom two better....the one giving the finger is hot...

Posted by: LawBoy on Jan 26, 07 | 5:06 am

We need more alternative stuff like this, the mainstream Japanese pics all seem the same... anyone know of any Japanese photographers who are doing interesting stuff with naked women? Besides Araki?

Posted by: jbangkok on Jan 26, 07 | 4:43 pm

how do i post a pic of a girl to find out if any body knows who she is?

Posted by: TBoneTodd on Jan 26, 07 | 4:53 pm

You can post an image in the comments by using:

by using what, it did not show up.

Unfortunately, putting the exact image code in a post stops pMachine from displaying it as text! Use the following code without the spaces:

The immages are sent to me by a girl who lives in the philippines. They are on my computer but I can not find them on the net. These pics have to be a model, but I have never seen her before. I thought you guys would be able to identify her if she really is a model, cause this girl says she wants to marry me and I think she is a fake.

Posted by: TBoneTodd on Jan 26, 07 | 9:58 pm

ooh well, you have a pretty cool site here anyway. LOL

I like it.

Posted by: TBoneTodd on Jan 26, 07 | 9:59 pm

Well, TBone most probably is some girl using a cybercafe and posing as a beauty, just to get your attention (and money and 'love').
Get your friend on webcam is the only way to see her real face. And then, again, she may ask a friend to be on webcam while she types. Be careful, don't believe in the 'i love you' words.

Posted by: daznlover on Jan 27, 07 | 2:06 pm

you are very correct, I joined a site to find an asian wife 15 days ago, Funny because I got over 700 e-mails from Filipina women. Told all of them I either need to see them on cam or they need to take a pic of them self holding a sign saying my name on it. I got some of the funniest responses from the fake people on there. LOL One of them was even trying to send me pics of Bea Alonzo who is a tv star over there. But the one I choose is on cam every time we talk and what a sweetheart she is. is the site, look out for the scammers but there are some real sweet girls on there too.

Posted by: TBoneTodd on Jan 27, 07 | 4:28 pm

700 emails, pretty amazing. Well, look out for the sweet girls in disguise too, that's all i can say. And good luck!

Posted by: daznlover on Jan 27, 07 | 6:58 pm

Hey T-Bone,

You can post a pic of her here by going to and uploading the pics then post the URL link here.

Be careful though man with any of these girls wanting to marry you or telling you they love you. I hate to keep bringing this link into every thread but read this guys story before you commit to anything.

Posted by: darklighter1 on Jan 27, 07 | 8:24 pm


Thank you for this, I really appreciate you looking out for me. A little about my situation for you. #1 any girl who asks for money for any reason I delete from my messanger and put her on ignore.
#2 they must verify who they are on web cam. #3 if they send me any nude pics, I delete tham. #4 they must let me make all the decisions on how things are going to be handled.

I got burnt once, not any where near as bad as this guy you showed me, but I wont get burned again.

And I have narrowed my search down to just one girl in the whole process, she is not the prettiest girl i could have chosen but she is the only one that followed all my rules and that chats with me every day with web cam.

I called immigration and they told me that in order for her to come to live with me in the USA, I must visit her first.
Our wedding will be in the USA.

So if any body else is looking for an asian wife, In all your sweetness to these girls, give them the rules up front. Tell them that they are not the only one you are chatting with, they hate it, but it makes them want you more. LOL

Posted by: TBoneTodd on Jan 28, 07 | 10:20 pm

this is just weird....what is up with the rules and everything...i dont know you can start a relationship on equal footing when one side is setting the rules of the game....sorry Tbone..IMHO.....good luck with all that and check with an imigration lawyer about the rules of the game to bring her here or you can send me an email...good luck to ya...

Posted by: LawBoy on Jan 28, 07 | 11:30 pm

You would be amazed on how some girls have the patience to follow all the rules, have a 2 year marriage and then divorce to get US citizenship. Or maybe you know this already. But always helpful to share this point. Don't rush it.

Good luck and treat her well, let her make some decisions too, it's a 2 person marriage. ;)

Posted by: daznlover on Jan 29, 07 | 1:10 am

If you dont set rules for yourself, You get burned. If i would have not followed my rules I set up for myself then I would have sent money to like 200 women who asked. They all had pictures but few could actually prove it was them.

Just like if you go to a bar and you like some girl, talk with her, like her even more then she wont give her phone number and asks you for money. Duh You just going to hand her $500 because she says she needs it? NOPE

The rules are for you to follow so you dont get burned.

Posted by: TBoneTodd on Jan 29, 07 | 9:42 am

Under the circumstances, TboneTodd's approach sounds perfectly sensible and reasonable to me. He isn't talking about what happens after marriage, but how he selects somebody to marry. I'm sure it will be more of a two-way street once their relationship actually gets under way, right Todd?

Posted by: Dr. Lee on Jan 29, 07 | 9:51 am

Glad to hear you're taking precautions T-Bone! Just really try to get to know her for some serious time even if it means multiple trips over there. Don't rush into anything bro! Good luck though with all!!

Posted by: darklighter1 on Jan 29, 07 | 8:17 pm

Dr Lee, Yes Sir, and Dark, thanks,

You guys are great.

Here is my myspace if any of you want to add me as friends.

Posted by: LawBoy on Jan 30, 07 | 4:40 am
