    I have thought about the lamp some more, and here are possible explanations:

    1. She is brandishing it to defend herself.
    2. It is a gift, possibly of sentimental value or significance.
    3. Some sort of steam-punk sex toy.
    3a. An erotic fantasy involving an electrician.
    4. There has been an argument, or passionate love-making and the lamp was knocked over. She has picked it up.
    5. She represents a goddess of light or electricity.
    6. Her lover has disappointed her, and she is retreating to a corner of the room to read (or sulk?).
    7. She does not know what to do with her hands. The photographer handed her the lamp.
    8. It's the last sheet of film or the end of the session. The photographer suggests, "Let's do something different."
    9. To paraphrase Freud (or was it Groucho Marx?), sometimes a lamp is just a lamp.

    I'm in big trouble now.
    3, go with 3.

    Isn't it amusing how riled up people get when their evolutionary buttons are pushed? Another fine portrait, Deardorffuser!

    Fantastic work Deardorffuser both w/ & w/out lamp! One of the best artist posting work in this section IMHO and always quality images.

    I would go with satirical.

    This series of nudes/semi-nudes are not portraits -- they revel very little of the person. Glamour photography would be a better fit as its genre.

    Edited to add: I bring this up because it helps to better understand the poses and props. Instead of the images being primarily biographical (portraits), the photographer, as photographers do, is creating his/her own stories, which in turn can not help but be at least partly autobiographical and express who the photographer is.
