Really? He is (or was) a well know and very successful American Rapper. Gangstas Paradise etc..


Honestly? I could have sworn that Coolio was 'telle Garvey's illegitimate child, born between the first and second series of Benidorm.

Quote from Lisaliz
Well, a good life study is well worth working at, and nothing to be ashamed of in the least. people spend years working towards these! and yes, good point, plenty of fine b & w  pencil / ink work and charcoal / chalk / pastel monotones...

So, where does the art come into it? and again, surely this need not exclusively be b & w photography?




Art nude as a category on this site is really for the benefit of models (and photographers thereof) who want to distinguish themselves from glamour models. Some people see glamour modelling as tacky and the line between glamour modelling and adult is very hazy. Being an artist's model is much more respectable (At least if you've seen Titanic ).


Thus models and photographers use the art nude /artistic nude as shorthand for 'nothing tacky / porno'.

I think that in part the preponderance of Black and white comes from harking back to the days when only real photographers had cameras and there was no colour film.
In a sense all photos are art, but even in a narrower sense some definitely are (not just because they are in galleries), whether or not they feature people in a state of undress is largely irrelevant to their artistic merit.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...
