And yet again an image of women being objectified makes DD, because this site is just about "appreciation of art" and nothing more. Funny how there are never images making DD where guys are objectified like this. No double standard or anything, how dare I complain?
It's not objectification.. but then again that word can be used in a matter of opinion. But to tell you yes there are plenty of male DD's like this It has nothing to do with men or women I am female and I like this shot artistically that is why I suggested this particular photograph...you just don't see the beauty or artistic-ness that is why you just piss on it shouting "objectified"
If you have a problem with images that make DD or rather, the reasoning behind it please do take it up with them. I am personally holding up a belief that there is aesthetic component to everything and have shot with men as well as women which you may see here, if interested: www.dafnaljubotina.com/portfol… Thank you.
Art was a concept created by humanity millions of years ago. And this concept has changed as our history moved foward. One of the most important events in art, was the reinnasence. This period has changed the concept of art for humanity to a way even today the concept of art is marked by it, even if the reinasence itself is old by now. It was a movement dominated by man, as everything in the middle age, and they were looking to represent on art the most beautifull forms and shapes. And they always based themselves on the female body. Always, even on images that do not show her, even if the artist didnt do it counsiously. Everything on art is a testimony of female beauty: the curves, soft and organic shapes, lightness and softness on the colors and small details of brightness, all that represents a beautifull painting, sculpture, or picture, is in fact a representation of female itself.
So no, this isnt an "obejtification" of a woman, its a shrine, to praise all that men find beautifull about female, their softness, lightness, small spots of brightness on the skin perfectly matching the light of the room. Art is, and will always be, a she, even if there isnt a woman in the canvas.
This isn't objectification, this is admiration of her beauty and the elegance of what she's wearing. Objectification of women is trying to pass off women as nothing but a sex object, and that's not what I'm seeing here. There IS a difference between art and objectification.
These examples of objectification (at least, the first two ) are literal objectification, where the body is simply the venue for the message. In this case, the issue is of sexual objectification, where a woman's body IS the message, and that of a primarily male response to stimulus. Like Pavlov's dogs, we salivate.
It's annoying :\ but some say it's just becuase women's bodies are more suited for that kind of thing. both are objectified, it just happens that women are in a far more annoying way .__. which doesn't mean it's good.
There's something about this that is simply intriguing... I don't know what it is. It could be the fact that she reminds me of a victoria secret model, but I think this picture has more emotion than that...
It's a great shot. I like the way she is playing with her clothes, it makes them seem even more feminine than they already are. I also think that the light in the picture came out nicely. In a nutshell, a very interesting picture. Well done. ^^
