    Hi Bruce!
    I'm with you - I could never undertake the challenge of photographing people, nevermind nekkid ones, and so I have a lot of respect for people who like my friend can do it respectfully and artistically, and I have to admit that my own definition of "artistic nekkidness" is rather narrow and conservative, LOL!
    Blessings, K

    In today's - Thursday, March 15, Boston Globe, page C12 (Section C, page 12 - Style), there is a wonderful image (nude - definitely nude) contained in a full page(!) St. Ives ad.

    In deference to any possibility of copyright risks, check it out at:

    That DID get my attention! I wonder if the Globe will get any flak over this...?

    Any comments?
    Carpe erratum!!

    Ed- I doubt it- if it is the image on the front of the website- no nipples or body hair showing.

    As someone who photographs a lot of nudes, I must say the amount of consternation that folks get into over nude images utterly stuns me. We all have bodies, and we all have to see them in their OEM glory at least once a day (unless you're from certain parts of the world where bathing is optional or exposing flesh is ill-advised).

    One reason why some folks will never be able to do a nude is that whole "Nekkid" issue- they have a certain discomfort with it that prevents them from trying, and if they try, they'll most likely have a very rough go of it and not generate successful images.

    I have total respect for folks who don't shoot nudes- nothing at all wrong with it- just like there's nothing wrong with someone who doesn't photograph fire hydrants. However, it does rub me a bit the wrong way when folks refer to the nude work I do as "nekkid pictures", because I do invest a great deal of seriousness into what I do, and it is not done for the purpose of prurient tittiliation. I would hope that my nude work is provocative in multiple senses - not only does it inflame the passions, but it provokes the intellect.

    If you can find a copy of Veruschka: Transfigurations (or Oxydations in an earlier abbreviated and monochrome German version), there are very cool images of her body-painted to fit into industrial backdrops. Googling Veruschka will turn up a few images from several series from that book.

    Brazilian "bed" advertisements

    They look hand painted to me. Pretty cool! I'd like to light them differently but not my images or concept . This photographer had a tough day at the office.

    There's no telling what the photos are


    Bill Brandt, 1938


    I hope there's more to them than the printing, however.

    One ad shoot speaks volumes about the chasm separating Brazil from the United States. Makes you want to learn Portuguese, doesn't it?

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    David-

    I was simply reversing the situation for the purpose of argument - as someone who does shoot nudes, I often hear that kind of comment about nude work. Kinda like the Seinfeld "He's GAY! .... not that there's anything wrong with that" kind of comment. Just putting the shoe on the other foot as it were.

    Truly though, I do mean it when I say that I have the utmost respect for folks whose subject matter/media are not my own choice. Especially if their work is of such quality that it catches my attention despite my native disinterest in their medium/subject matter. I've had enough moments where that's happened that I know better than to pre-judge someone's work based on a word or two.
