    Ha I saw a thread on BME about people getting their anus pierced. Even those weirdos thought it was wrong, in terms of ever healing and not getting infected and killing you. Yet lots of people have done it.

    I wonder what's so bad that he has to hide it under his socks?
    Still, I suppose you have to leave something up to the imagination...

    If the soapbox is vacant I'll seize the opportunity...

    Nudes, like celebrity portraits or grand vistas, often have the same shortcoming where the photographer tends to lean on the impact of the subject and lets the issue of craft slide.

    The problem of knowing just what we are trying to say and finding what might really be our personal statement is enough of a challenge that it seems safer to go with a subject & treatment that we know the viewer will be interested in for sure. It seems as if the girl is attractive and scenery is interesting, then that's about all that's needed for a lot of shooters.

    Mimicking the behavior of a creative person doesn't make you a creative person, however, despite huge media onslaughts to the contrary. Nothing is truly either/or, though, and fairly often something that starts as mimicry can evolve into a singular statement that has a life of its own, so... whatever.

    One thing I admire about Frank, other than his amusing posts, is that fact that you know his work when you see it, and it has something of who he is contained within. A way of shooting we can all learn from.

    Ah, please, no self-portraits in here!



    I guess what he wanted to hide is already sticking out...

    Arca Andy, why not post your own?

    Think we are missing the deeper questions here... imagine what how the TSA would clear him through airport security this holiday season.

    Sorry folks I may talk an equal nude photo rights argument but I fall into that camp that only has photographed women nude...so attached is my Missis one month pregnant with our son Mac...The idea was too do a series of shots showing the change in a woman's body throughout pregnancy. However the whole pregnant, sorting out our life, before the birth thing rather got in the way of the photography.
    That was ten years ago and I haven't shot another nude since then.
