Remember Megan K. Eagles? We featured one of her photos on July 4th and ever since then we’ve been unable to shake our affinity for her work. Usually we just go after them right away and if it that doesn’t happen, a quick post does the trick. But even after fulfilling our to showcase her work at the most appropriate time, we found her scent still lingering in our noses.

Happy Explosion Day was just the bang of the starter pistol, we were now off to the races.

Being that this week is The Photo Issue, we grew some balls and found out how to contact the London based photographer via her website. Her work is so splendidly raw and unflinching that we initially assumed that her genius mind would never take a break from its cycle of creating to acknowledge the likes of a young webzine across the pond.

To the surprise of our low self esteem, Eagles promptly responded and brought an end to days we were would admire her from afar. We were now corresponding with the artist herself and after gathering some choice selections from various series like Seren, Graveyard, and Furries; we began to find out exactly what make this beloved shutterbug flutter so exquisitely.

How do you come up with the titles for most of your series?

“To be honest there’s not much thought put into them – just whatever comes into my head when I’m putting up the story on my site!”

Wait, ‘not much thought’? It seems like the more we speak brilliant artists, the more we find out that true madness has no real method. Sure, it is just a title but it is often the title that sums up the work. To think that Eagles approaches titling her work with the same reckless abandon that is present throughout her work overall is a true testament to the authenticity of her talent.

There seems to be quite a liberal approach when it comes to nudity in your work, does it serve any significant purpose that you want the audience to recognize?

“Well, my good friend Seren Gibson, who features in a lot of my work, is a glamour model so she doesn’t mind getting her kit off for me which is great as she’s got a ridiculously amazing body. The work we do together is kind of a response to more commerical glamour photography – wanting to photograph hot women but without photoshop; tan lines, body hair etc and show that it can even more sexy (hopefully!). I also prefer shooting glamour models as their bodies as much more fun to photograph. Seren and I are also working on a project together to bring back the bush to glamour magazines.”

She’s like a smash-up between Tank Girl and Gordon Parks. She appears not to give a fuck but a sense of purpose keep her from falling completely off her rocker. Her work snogs your sense — in essence, a elegantly slutty daydream.

Overall what do you want your audience to take away from your work?

“I just want people to enjoy them! I try to shoot women for women so that a female audience can look at hot photos of women and see them from a female gaze. I am straight but I love looking at women and want other women to get the same joy I get from looking at a hot woman.”
