‘..it’s true yes, sometimes artists only care about the body of a woman. Some people take offense to that, nowadays more often it seems, guess it’s part of this new movement where everyone can label everything as offensive towards, against or because of “xyz” and, due to political and / or social correctness, get their way. The right of [artistic] freedom of expression has erroded into a “yes of course, but…” situation. This is a dangerous delevopment, very few seem to fully grasp the consequences if this continues unchecked. …as for my model ? well it isn’t that complicated, I told her my idea for the photo, gave her the context as to why I wanted to make it and she agreed, end of story. Does she now think that I only used her as some sort of flesh vessel for this photo and this post ? of course not.’
