Parts. Although this fits in with the concept of classic nude photography (examples of
disembodied hands, torsos, breasts, etc. abound in artistic nudes), I think it is,
in reality, the most dehumanizing form of nude photography. People argue that it's art,
which I agree, but, without the face of the subject, it becomes just some body part detached for
people to gawk at. Just how dehumanizing it can be was best summed up by one of my models,
who, when looking at some shots from a recent session we had done, said, "Whose pussy is that? That's
not mine, is it?"
