You have to be a pretty good artist to overcome the Horny Dude Stigma of nude photography. For one, what guy wouldn’t want to wake up every morning and have naked people look forward to? Breakfast? Hell, no. Bus ride? Fuck off, I’m taking a cab.
How do you justify it to the art world, let alone your mom? Um, I couldn’t just ask them to take their pants off. Like, you need a reason.
Then there’s that whole other pickle of body painting. How the hell do you not make a Goldfinger joke?
