Helpful links for nude and erotic photographers

"Good art grabs your attention. Great art holds onto it."
"A competent critic doesn't merely react but responds to a piece of art."
"Erotica is the art of sex, without sex."

I am an open-minded and liberated individual with an intriguing mix of masculine and feminine characteristics. I am a practicing nudist and a sex-positive artist, with an interest in blues and rock guitar. I worship youth and femininity, and delight in taking pictures of myself when other models aren't forthcoming.

As a socially-conscious artist, I seek to confront and examine issues related to nudity, gender, and sexuality via the medium of self-portrait photography. I start by challenging the preconceived notions that nudity is private, gender is rigid, and sex is ugly, and see where that leads me.

There is much beauty and intrigue in the process of becoming, that whispers of the mystery of creation itself. It is neither strange nor uncommon for one to become transfixed by it.

A camera is a tool that can be used to either document, or present. A document is merely a record, and is only as interesting as the thing it is documenting. A presentation is a piece of art, that can make even dull things interesting to look at. But the best photographs are presentations that document something interesting.

I dedicate myself to holding erotic works up to the standards of fine art. However, I don't believe there is any utility in disparaging the chaff for the sake of the wheat. Even erotic artists have to start somewhere. And outstanding art, by definition, can only exist as an exception to the common pool of average works. Without constant reference to the banal, we'd lose our appreciation for the sublime. You see, bad art has a purpose - it makes good art even better!

Why Nudism? by zharth

I'm excited to announce the release of my first book designed for (more or less) general audiences. Over the past year, I've shot a series of self-portraits illustrating the various reasons a person might practice nudism. It's an informational and artistic showcase of both my photography and writing. Support me as an artist by picking up your copy today! (Also available as an ebook).

Wonderful galleries; there is an otherworldly grace about your poses that is often beautifully complemented by the intensity of the gaze.

I admire your strength of character, and am eager to see what you choose to share next.

Good for you, keep up the fantastic work.

Do you think nudism is immoral? And why do you think so?
