Fast forward.

The photos below appear in Treats! Magazine (Spring 2012) and these great scans are courtesy of a fun blog called mmm...Models. The photos are by Steve Shaw

Skinny Dipping Amateurs

A reader named Charles from Massachusetts sent this in without explanation, other than a single word in the body of his email:
We totally agree with that sentiment, and don't think there's much else about this that needs to be said.

Thanks Charles.

By the way, we slapped the Underwater tag on this sucker, because our friend on the right is dripping wet.

What the hell else do you need to know?

Nothing. Except maybe that this photo is by Liz Collins.

Found on Flickr

We love the "Recent from Everyone" feature of Flickr. It shows you the most recent several uploads. Given that between three and six thousand photos are uploaded every minute, the variety is enjoyable. And sometimes you hit pure gold.

As with this set from a user named Eclexion_Arts. This young woman poses for many photos, and her eyebrows are a force of a nature.

Oh, and she's in a car, so we used the Drive It! tag, which we don't often get to use.

Don't forget we have a whole group on Flickr, devoted to Women's Eyebrows! Constantly growing (the group, not the brows). And modestly, we must say, it's awesome!!

Cultural Appropriation: Right or Wrong?

We picked this photo, by Nathan Small, because we thought the chick was smoking hot, and we like her eyebrows a lot. But we know this photo could be deemed controversial, so we're accompanying with this educational point-counterpoint.

If you are not interested in that you can just stare at the photo. Your call.

There is a debate about cultural appropriation. Here are two sides of the argument, reduced to a simple paragraph.

It is absolutely flat out wrong to appropriate Native American culture or ethnic identity. It perpetuates stereotypes, extends the Caucasian hegemonic position of abusive dominance, and sends the message that it is OK to depict Native Americans and, by logical extension, other under-represented minority segments of society, in a simplistic, reductionist way that damages the cause of tolerance, multiculturalism, and understanding.

It's OK to use images based on American ethnographic history for artistic purposes. There is no harm in a nude model, for example, drawing inspiration from well-known Native American (or American Indian) themes. Those include the eagle feather head-dress and the greeting with hand up-raised, palm facing forward. The model (and artist) are creating visual interest, thematic cohesion, and a sense of mischievous playfulness, nothing more.
