My controversy.

You may or may not remember that I've previously blogged about shooting an image set with Ricky, and not being able to find anyone who wanted to post it on their website. The photoshoot in this case was simply me being cute and taking off a red slip in the sunlight. I never did get it posted on a website, but you can see images from it here from time to time.

Now I'm going through the same thing with another photoset that Ricky and I've shot. The last one was denied because it was simply too plain- I don't think it stood on its own in terms of grabbing your eye. This a whole other story. Even I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Bascially, it's photoshoot that depicts an assault/rape victim waking up the morning after. I'm not sure if I've gone too far with this one- if trying to get it put of sites that traditionally post pornography is insulting and demeaning and incredibly...wrong. I'm really not sure.

Photography by Ricky; January 2006.

then again, if the site is meant for arousal, rape and assult just doesnt belong. why not another site though?

Well, I love playing with taboos- like I said, I'm torn over this one.

I didn't get rape / sexual assault from that pic - it looked to me like kind of an ironic contrast with the bottom of the lampshade exposed and the leg (of course, it was only one photo of many in the set). I really liked the pic - when I read the comment, though, I had to rethink (which isn't bad - in fact, a pic that I like and then makes me question what I like is a powerful image).
