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!
