Usually I don't comment on my own photos, but since there's a lot of controversy about this picture I want to make an exception:

About the model's age:
She's 22. I'm a professional and I work with professional models.

Is this art or not?
I want my viewers to answer this question for themselves, but think about this: Just because an image has the ability to arouse (some) people sexually, does not make it "low art". If you think it does, then you probably think sexuality is low too and in this case I truly hope you get over your prejudice sometime and start to enjoy life.

Despite all the said controversy....This is a naturally beautiful picture of a very attractive young lady. The human body is a work of art all in itself and the this one just so happens to be a female masterpiece!!! It is simple yet bold, bold but not overdone, Nothing added to it to give it a negative impact while it's simplicity speaks volumes. She is perfection at it's pinnacle, innocent yet alluring, clean, classy and elegant (pleasingly graceful and stylish in her appearance). It is truly sad that you must speak out to defend yourself from small minded onlookers but never the less I believe that your art itself should quell the woes all by itself. Have Mercy! :-)

I've not read all the controversy over this picture and that of some of your other pictures, but as a keen nude photographer myself, and also for what it is worth I believe you post some of best female nudes here on DA.  

Anyone who thinks the human female is not the pinnacle of nature's art really needs to take a long look at themselves.  After-all, as someone else eluded to the continuation of the human species relies on the admiration of the male for a female, there is no getting away from this, this is fact, it's written in our DNA....

However, as humans and through our evolution and restrictions placed by society, there are some individuals who see nudity as something dirty or perverted, well sorry its not, we are all nude under our clothes, its the way we came into this world, and for that to happen a woman would have to be involved (obvious I Know).

Now before I get shot down here, think about it.... I know I've interjected some of my own opinion, but at the end of the day for the human species to continue a man must be attracted to a woman and vice versa - now we have that out of the way, how does that affect this debate.

Well.

I believe a photographer in this genre should be able to celebrate the human female in a way which is sensual, erotic, beautiful, funny sad, elusive, and all things which make up the complex but amazingly beautiful creatures that are women. After-all over 50% of the human population are made up of women, so for those like Stefan here who try to celebrate them in their most natural form should be congratulated and not ridiculed

In my opinion its porn. The model Is a well known pornstar and some of the adult films she's been in are more creative and artistic than this piece. I mean come on, theirs no artistic element or emotional element added by featuring the damn electric outlet.

To me I enjoy the nude body and nude art and the naked body is not porn. What is being done with the naked body (such as sex, masturbation, touching of genitals, spreading labias) is porn to me. Some people are so uptight that they get offended when a women breastfeeds their child. In my opinion that is ridiculous, but hey what do I know I am not a pro photographer nor model and I do not have an ounce of artistic talent in me.
