in the nude, all that is not beautiful is obscene – robert bresson
In presenting ‘The hard line’ project, a question is being put to you, the viewer, where is ‘your’ line that differentiates a photograph from being considered art, nude, erotic or pornographic?
As we have all been exposed to differing influences, circumstances and experiences during our personal development, all of which can colour our perception of where our line exists, this project presents a range of photographic images that combine ‘the aesthetic’ with ‘the intent’ for you to consider, and hopefully encourage discourse on the subject amongst your peers, art viewing associates, friends and loved ones.
Does the female form dictate where the line is placed?
Does the intent of the subject dictate where the line is placed?
Does your personal bias dictate where the line is placed?
