Fotograf Albert Pocej našao se pred neobičnim izazovom. Snimao je 15 žena u trenutku kada doživljavaju orgazam.
Pocej je ideju dobio u snu, kako je rekao za Bored Pandu, a najviše problema zadala mu je potraga za modelima. „Nemam dovoljno hrabrosti“, odgovarale su mu žene ili su jednostavno ćutale kada su čule njegov predlog.
„Svi ljudi su različiti, pa tako i njihovi orgazmi.“
Prilikom fotografisanja žene nisu smele da glume orgazam, već su zaista morale potpuno da se prepuste pred njegovim objektivom, a da bi trenutke zabeležio što bolje, Pocej je koristio time lapse. Na taj način fotoaparat je okidao svake sekunde, pa nije morao stalno da bude uz modele što im je olakšalo poziranje, otkriva fotograf. Kaže da su neke žene tražile da ostanu same s fotoaparatom, dok drugima uopšte nije bio problem da on stoji iza objektiva dok se samozadovoljavaju.
„Nisam želeo kliše. Nikakvu glumu. Želeo sam pravi osećaj, onakav kakav zaista jeste.“

Photographer Albert Pocej set himself an unusual challenge. He wanted “to capture the moment of women reaching the highest point of physical pleasure.”
How did he come (ahem) up with this idea? In his wildest dreams, of course.
„I simply woke up and I knew I just had to do it. So I tried to explore the female orgasm through a photography experiment.
At first I thought it would be impossible. Finding the models was the most difficult part. I started to write to everybody I know without any boundaries since all the women are so different. The answers I got were mostly two kinds: “I don’t have enough courage”, and just the silence, which is also pretty obvious as an answer. When I finally found 20 women that were ready to take part in this project, some of them refused to continue when I told them that it will not be acting, and some of them weren’t able to relax already while shooting. So at the end there were only 15 left.
According to Albert—all of the participating models “experienced real orgasms” during their photographic session. To achieve the “best results” Albert used time lapse to help the models relax. Some of them didn’t need it and were happy to enjoy themselves in front of the photographer.
I didn’t want this project to be a cliché, I didn’t want any acting – just the real feeling as it is. Every human being is different, so are their orgasms. I wasn’t trying to make it any better as it is in life. I wanted to make those looking at these pictures to think.
And clichés don’t make people think.
