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.

Besides the leading line coming out of the tope of her right knee, I actually enjoy the photo. Too bad I've seen this model on porn sites and in a few actual porn movies.

Art and Porn are not mutually exclusive. One shades very gradually into the other, with a tremendous overlap that exhibits both, intermixed. There is clearly artistic intent by the photographer shown in this image. There are elements of artistic care, for example in the lighting and the geometry of the layout. The pose, however, is...rather inelegant, and is often seen in work that is more clearly porn. There is an informality to the model's pose that almost makes this seem unstaged, which simultaneously adds to its charm and increases the image's  pornographic feel. So, I allow the photographer his claim to art, but it is as much a carnal effect as an aesthetic one.

Porn.
You say you are a pro... So what's your pro excuse for having such a distracting and ugly detail as the power plugs in focus in your image? Please don't come with a parallelism about energy/life between plugs and holes depicted...

I totally agree. Il y a une différence entre "suggestion" et "exposition". Entre "érotisme" et "porno". Pour moi, la photographie de nu ne doit pas juste montrer un corps et le sexe, sinon elle ne fait que donner de l'excitation, mettre en avant nos pulsions sexuelles et non pas notre émotion, notre capacité à aimer les "belles choses". Il y a une différence entre apprécier un beau corps - mis en valeur par une photographie prise avec talent, dans une ambiance particulière - et avoir envie de se toucher en voyant une photo. Cette photo en particulier - car d'autres de vos photos de Caprice sont bien mieux réussies - ne dépassent pas ce stade de "donner envie".
