Chas Ray Krider, born in 1950, is dragging what he loves about the past into the present so it may live and linger a while longer. His body of work presents a non-linear narrative that suggests a story of love, lust and desire. Chas Ray Krider’s photographs are part of a tradition of erotic art that employs exaggeration, mystery and the guilty pleasures of voyeurism. His photographs are about the forms employed in narrative-based erotic art.
Chas Ray’s work is widely exhibited and published, including three solo books, Motel Fetish by TASCHEN in 2002, Do Not Disturb by La Musardine of Paris, 2007, and Dirty Rendezvous, Goliath Books, Berlin, 2014. Krider’s photography has also been featured in The New Erotic Photography, Fetish Dreams, Dita: Burlesque and the Art of Tease, and Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography Vol. 1-4. He lives in Columbus, Ohio.
