  • Title: Comfort in Vulnerability
  • Artist: marioferdino
  • Description: a photography project for an art class, with one of my good friends as a model.
    for over the past 1 and a half, i've been basing my art on the theme of "Body Modification", so for a change, i wanted to create a piece that had an absence of body modification. Since it's impossible to live life without modifying your body one way or another. This is as close as i can get.

  • Pictures of the nude body often occur in photography, so yes it is art. And to the people complaining about the guy not looking old enough- focus on the photography and not the appearance of the person.
    Critique; I'm unsure about the pose. You could also attempt to make use of the space around him, if not try cropping the photo down.

  • Whoa. Very well done, I would not be suprised if you got an A+! It looks classy and sophistocated because you did it in black and white.
    razz Your friend's handsome and that makes the picture even better. Just ignore the a** monkey, 103-BlackBird-103.

  • Interesting content...it really expresses the basic theme you're trying to convey.

    Gaia may not be the best place to showcase work like this though...judging by previous posts, people aren't taking you seriously. It's a powerful shot and deserves a better audience (preferably one who knows how to turn their caps lock button off).
    Anyways, 5/5
