“Head” is a photography series by New York-based photographer Roger Kisby, who captured some beautiful portraits of famous porn stars, like Skin Diamond and James Deen.

Outside of their X-rated work environment, these actors show a true and pure version of themselves, with the photographer highlighting their intense facial expressions. Including actors of different gender, age, race, sexual orientation and body shape, everybody seems to look into the photographer’s lens with their most honest self.

The photographer intended to completely strip his models, both physically and mentally and this is why he asked them to remove their clothes before the shooting. He wanted them to be naked in front of a lens that wasn’t going to capture their sexuality but their soul. The process of this shooting was not sexually charged and its aim was to expose the vulnerability of these actors, and not their sexual skills.
