These images come at a time when many creatives are wrestling with the challenges of photographing the female body in an elevated style — but explicitly and yes, with a degree of confrontation — and not getting in trouble with the censors in the traffic engines that run our lives and also Facebook, should we post one of these photos.
We are also trying to distinguish ourselves from the pornographers and drive a wedge in the assumption that any imagery of the female body is corrupting. Conservatives want all images like these banished from the face of the earth. It’s too much woman power.
How thrilling to see this psychological treatise on the female body. I feel that Sorrenti — known for his love of woman power — is so intimately connected with what we’re trying to accomplish here. Mario Sorrenti is officially a soul mate in our drive to create a more female-centric world. Bravo and thank you! Anne
