Joe Schwab is a talented German photograph from Berlin, fascinated, as I am, by the diversity of women bodies and more than that, by their singular beauty although so varied. A way to condemn the normalization of beauty in the media for the last century. Here are some of his portraits but there are many more on his deviantArt gallery here, his site there, and here you can read a recent interview in which there is this sentence I dedicate to the visitors leaving aggressive comments about Juergen Teller and other pictures of this blog, denying that it is art "Everything that is able to communicate emotion, is art. Failed art when it bores". They can keep their narrow-minded view of art but they should think that when Munch showed his work, all their similars of these times said that it was only contextual amateurism and not art. They are forgotten forever and Munch is considered by almost everyone as a great artist.

  2. Can you kindly tell me who is the woman that has the letter D under her name?

  3. Absolutely not. Her name was not specified, only this letter. I know many come to this page only for sexual excitement motivations, but sorry that some (on reddit) think I'm a piss poor word writer but I don't post these pix for visitors to wank on.
