What is it about the naked body that freaks people out so much?
A couple of months ago I volunteered to lead a workshop for some inner city youth about women's body image. I was thinking I would show some slides of my work and prompt a conversation based on that about bodies and body image. I would also show slides from art history like the ones I've had on this blog before - you know, Rembrandt, Manet, Picasso - people who get paid big bucks for their work so are presumably acceptable to society.
