Image of the week: 13-19 December, 2020
Is the photographic nude a form of legitimate self-expression, or can it ever only be a form of objectification? If I had to pick images that best represented the ambivalence I have with the photographic nude, this would be at the top of the list. The model's pose perfectly expresses a despairing resignation. Shot some years ago in a studio with bare walls, it took me a long time to develop the Photoshop skills needed to add the neon signs.
It's from the 'Art is a lie' gallery on the website.
