I admit I've been drawn towards this one by the fact that it's a nude, but that's not all... This is a fabulous picture about femininity, and it's such fabulous a picture because there's a sound dosis of femininity in front of the lens and behind the camera. Congratulations. Those bars are such a splendid idea - if until now I had half a chance of shooting an act, envy would be oozing out of my pores for not having the idea myself.
The main thing that strucks me about this picture is that it's so free of any of so typical artificialness (artiness, art-imperativeness) always produced by men - like peaking through a keyhole, while pretending they're doing it for a higher cause. How much different it is when all pretences are dropped, especially when, in fact, there are none to be dropped at all. This is the first act after a very long time that hasn't made me wonder why on earth this pose, why this accessories, why this lighting, why taking the picture at all. It's just there, as if it has always existed, as if it has created itself - as it actually might have.
I wish we had more female photographers here. I don't say that in hopes of seeing more good nudes, but only because it's so interesting to see things in a somewhat different way.
