I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death, but my brother who is a long-time photographer was recently fired from his job after his photos became too "explicit." He was a photographer for an international fashion magazine. Anyway, I'm finding more and more American media outlets are becoming increasingly prude when it comes to nude photography...as are Euorpean ones. My brother explained it to me as clearly as he could, the difference, but I do not seem to understand it. Can someone explain to me how an artistic nude photo could be considered pornography?
