i promised to post some examples of productive nude photography.
by ‘productive’ i mean work that expresses or develops a representation of women that is not harmful to them, that does not support patriarchal frames, that is loving. consider the work of leeann macomber (website here).
leanne herself is vividly beautiful, and her perspectives on gender performance are informed and radical (as all ours should be). i find her photographs to be sex positive, not exploitative. not promoting sexist interpretations. here are two pieces from her body series that i enjoy.
