Ah. Just about the only Simon & Garfunkel song I actually like. And now, thanks to this [link] now I will forever associate that song to post-apocalyptic dystopia.

Of course, this has hardly anything to do with your lovely model or your skill in capturing her loveliness.

I love how there are always legions of fanboys on your work ready to defend it as art.

Seriously, guys? I mean, really? A woman standing around cradling her breasts represents "Talking Without Speaking"?

Call me traditional, but I was under the impression that both talking and speaking required two people who were aware of the other's existence.

But hey, at least it's more artistic than the horrendous anime basketball-sized boobs that also reached the front page...

If "Artistic Nude" was actually for the art and not the tits then why aren't there any naked dudes?

I see what you mean, though. Tits will always be on the front page because of double standards, loopholes and perverts. :roll:
I really do see this piece as more artistic than most of the "artistic nude" crap that winds up on the frontpage, though.

Just saying.

I guess I should have said that there are no naked men on the front page and I agree with this one being more artistic than others, but that's not really saying much.

You got a point there.
And comments like: "keep takin pictures of this girl and no one else",
"She's so sexy" show how people really don't recieve these pics as art but mostly sexual/erotic imagery.
Yes, she's stunning and attractive but does that alone make it art? If so then any beautiful girl is art.
And I feel sad for any individual that gives nude photos on the net for money -if they don't enjoy doing so-.
On the other hand, female body is a very beautiful thing and there's nothing wrong to portrait it. But there's a thin line between erotic imagery and art. And I guess the viewer is the one who draws the line.

I completely agree with you on that. While I do think the photographer and model are doing it for the art, it is the viewers that cross that line and make female only nudity on the front page.

Person posting this: I'm artistic and deep
Me: No... you're naked. Sorta a difference.
To be fair the model is pretty but she'd be prettier and stronger with clothes on. Stronger because I feel a woman willing to post naked photos of herself to the internet has little self respect or moral fiber. Prettier because... I don't know really, it just feels wrong looking at her.
And this really is only borderline artistic. I mean, come on, its a girl posing naked. If that's artistic then strippers should be walking around in art museums.
Though its just my opinion, I suppose. Just kinda had my fill of the artistic nude crap.

You must also think that Cheerleading isn't a sport either.

Dancing is an art. And while its true that a lot if clubs leave a lot to be desired, combining dance with nudity and enticement doesn't make stripping anything lesser.
Likewise, while a lot of people think the only thing there is to it is taking pictures of a naked person, artistic nudes can be excellent art when done correctly.

This particular photo, while not outstanding, is well taken and, most importantly, tasteful.

You're free to have your own opinion, but frankly, I find your way if thinking retrograde.

Of course that's your opinion, but artistic nudity is quite different from a stripper, I have to say.

Strippers use their bodies as a commodity, and as a means of sexual entertainment, therefore perpetuating the stereotype of womens' bodies being treated and viewed as objects. A nude model, on the other hand, uses their body to further the understanding of human anatomy and movement for those that draw them, and therefore completely removing the stigma from female nudity all together.

And being comfortable with your body would be rather the opposite of having no self-respect, no? Especially considering how healthy body image is so rare and difficult to develop nowadays.

All in all, it's unfortunate that the naked body has been so overly sexualized as of late.
