Overview

Women who photograph other females and themselves in a state of undress within the realms of contemporary art photography, have sometimes been accused of the potential exploitation of their subjects and possibly themselves. So does this approach differ anyway politically or historically from a male approach or have these artists morphed into the new art pimps of the late 20th and early 21st century? Contemporary art photography, feminism, post modernism, the naked and the nude are discussed. An often humourous critic of why females are expected to behave in a certain way, by what criteria they are judged and how they were treated and viewed historically. Discussions on the gaze, who's looking at who; why and for what purpose; including the intention of the artist representation of the body, gender, sexuality, exploitation, political correctness, pornography, high art/low culture; shock tactics and the commerciality of such works.
