Ok.. so i get a fair bit of mail, thru my website and flickr.. most of it nice people telling me they appreciate what i’m doing w my camera, which i always appreciate hearing, but once in a while, i get stupid mail. The title of this post is taken from one such flickr mail i got this weekend, which went something like this:
“hey.. rebekka. I was wondering, if i sent you a nude picture of myself, would you send me one of yourself? Don’t get mad, it’s just a post-modern thing. ”
Yeah. Suppose throwing around some artsy phrases struck this person as a sure-fire way to get me naked and posing , for his viewing pleasure.. Maybe i should write him back and tell him he’s getting his genres confused, and that nude-picture swapping is more akin to neoclassicism. (altho it’s not, i’m just making that up) . Just to get him thinking. Maybe he’d end up at the library browsing thru art-history tomes, and would learn something useful, or at best, learn some new phrases to toss around at parties.
But hey, can’t blame a guy for trying i guess.Read 9 comments
