2/12: Buncha naked folks
scjody Tuesday Feb 12 04:40 PM
I don't know WHY those people are naked, but the location is Place des Arts, <A HREF='http://www.tourism-montreal.org/'>Montreal</A>, Quebec, Canada, home of the <A HREF='http://www.montrealjazzfest.com/accueil_eng.asp'>Montreal Jazz Festival</A> among others.

Heh.... I wonder how one of those censorware programs that try to identify picture of naked people based on the presence of a lot of "skin color" (we'll not even delve into any racial/ethnic issues the idea of "flesh colored" brings up) would react to that.

What do people think of his work? art? porn? stupid? what do you think the statement is, or is there one?

It's awesome art. Problem is, we don't get the final shots, only the news shots of the setup and stuff.

His work falls into a long tradition of nudes, but is different than a single meditation on the female form- there is a great contrast of bare human-ness and built enviroment that is very stark, can be spooky, and poetic I think. The nudity doesnt strike me as sexualized, but refreshingly mater-of-fact. I really like his photos.

Is it just me, or are there never any black folks in his pictures?
juju Saturday Jul 27 02:29 PM
It's probably just an artistic decision. Perhaps he just wants all of the subjects to be the same color.

I suspect it might be cultural. You don't really see a lot of black folks doing naked protests and things like this. Or, maybe caucasians have a gene that makes them more likely to take off all their clothes.

I'm suprised nobody thought to ask the obvious question...

That's no chick.

And I can't offer a specific example, but I'm not sure that there *aren't* black people in these pix. I think spectrum of skin tones that you do see makes it extremely difficult to draw a line and say "anybody darker than this is black". There are obviously a lot of people there about whom you can say "That one is unquestionably white." But there's oodles of folks who could be black, some other non-white race, or simply well-tanned caucasians.
O maybe my monitor needs adjusting. :-)

Definitely mine needs help. everything is tinged blue

Re: monitor problems
You don't have stereo speakers on top of your monitor, do you? I set a couple of 6x9's for my car on top of my TV once...fucked up all the colors for a few days.
BrianR Monday Jul 29 03:04 PM
Nope. Mine are the usual tine little ones and they're on the side, below the monitor.

Anybody else watching the views counter on this image? It still sells baby. Hmmm... naked beef?
