Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-07
Friends by *BareLight There were a great many suggesters for this image, so if I've mistakenly left any of them out, my apologies.

Suggester *d-e-c-a-d-e-n-c-e says, "The concept and execution of this photo amazes me. It is not too often that you find such strong conceptualism in nude photos. Very well done."

Suggester ~miss-jae says, "I was instantly drawn into this photograph and it evoked a few different emotions in me. I think it's an out of the box shoot as far as artistic nudes go - which is cool on its own. More so, it is a stunning portrayal of friendship, beauty and bravery."

Suggester *Storyofmyeyes says, "It's like they mold together, despite their differences. This image could not have been executed and framed more perfectly."

Suggester =Shadowelve says, "I really love the idea of friendship displayed here. For friendship there don't exist frontiers, barriers or judgements of society. It's simply "naked" friendship."

I have to say this is impeccable photography. The contrast, framing, lighting, posing, exposure and composition are excellent.

It evokes lots of different emotions and highlights so much about the models and ourselves as viewers. I am truly and honestly impressed with the friendship and bravery of the models, because with all of the cultural ideals and negativity it can be hard to express the raw truth of loving people that don't meet the "cultural" norm.

All people are people worth respect and love. I believe that "Judge not lest ye be judged" also fits prominently into the full appreciation of what this image portrays.

I like that at the same time that it presents contrast, it also presents similarity. It exposes our prejudice for what it is and how shallow our expectations can be.

This image seems to be less about the obesity epidemic and more about freindship and love overcoming cultural obstacles and preconceptions.

Well done and Bravo!

Idiot! There is NOTHING beautiful about GREED!
Pictures like this disgust me!
And idiots like you that try and convince the world that she's 'beautiful' disgust me even more!
I'm quite sure that someone loves her but I see absolutely NO reason to call her 'beautiful'
If being called ugly upsets her, then maybe she should demonstrate a little self control and STOP EATING SO FUCKING MUCH!!!

Who said she eats too much? It may very well be an hormonal problem...

HahahAhhaHHAah!
Bloody hell, do people actually STILL blame morbid obesity on hormonal imbalances!!
Haaha! I thought that excuse stopped being valid in the 1980s!!
Yes water retention and various other medical issues can cause some weight gain but seriously.........
It is physically IMPOSSIBLE to get this size without putting VAST amounts of food in her greedy bloody mouth!
Dont you watch TV, Have you not seen the amount of shit, companies like McDonalds and Coke have taken over the last 10 years because of the amount sugar in their food and drinks!!
And how too much junk food is making the USA obese!
I really am amazed that you still think hormonal problems can do this!
Believe me SHE EATS TOO MUCH!!!
Honestly you sound like an absolute idiot trying to pass this off as hormonal!!

No I do more than that : I studied biology. An endocrinal gland problem (hypophyse and thyroid) can make your body take huge proportions as well as the use of certain medication, even if you eat normally and healthy. Of course medicine can help you but it is expensive and not without risk.

Oh well I guess 80% of US citizens must have one of those then!.....

Strange how nobody in poor countries have endocrinal gland problems????

Just because one woman is larger than the other doesn't give you the right to make fun of them.

sure it does, if an obese women thinks she can be a model she wants attention. Sorry but its delusional and narccisitic to only accept positive feedback.

Sure but not expect universal approval. There is such a aesthetics, there is definitely such a thing as shared aesthetic values.

If a woman with a face like freddy kruger was posting images because she thought she could be a model- id hope someone would be honest enough to explain why it might not be a good idea.

before you have a kneejerk reaction and defend any and all people posting images, take a little assessment of reality.

ANOREXIA IS SERIOUS!!! Yes perhaps some kids do it for attention but how is it different from cutting or popular girls wearing scantily clad clothes, everyone wants attention it's human. Also I lost my best friend to Anorexia. It's not as simple as wanting attention.

:icongraphicsurge:
graphicsurge Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013
the problem is assuming a girl is anorexic if she isnt a fat pig.

And you know I can agree that generally any women posting pics of themselves is seeking attention. but just like american idol- some people have good reason, some should never touch a microphone.

Your second sentence is a good sentiment, but your analogy isn't. Just because a woman is obese but thinks she can be a model doesn't mean she's only accepting positive feedback.

it does when any sort of comment short of compliments is met with "then don't post" suggests otherwise.
