    Lilly Cole in Playboy

    An interesting article from The Independent: Is Lily Cole's appearance in 'Playboy' really art?

    Any thoughts?

    It would be unfair to come to some judgement with out seeing further samples.

    Right. The article assumes that the reader has also seen the Playboy photos.

    Purely in the interest of fair judgement, of course.

    Art or not. I wihs Ihad a copy of this French Edition of Playboy. It reminds me of the early days of Playboy when the photographs were more art and a little less revealing than recent years.l.

    Who is Lilly Cole?
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    The thing that jumps out at me is that the "No" essay (James Fox) seems to say that maybe it could be art if it weren't in Playboy. So putting it in Playboy makes it not art.

    I only read the French version of Playboy to keep up my foreign language skills.
