I would welcome a dialogue about these photographs. I find them rather extraordinary. I wonder if the predatory eye is related to the artist’s eye. But there is a weight of hesitation slowing my hands even as I type this. I find myself pausing, applying extra carefulness, wondering how to proceed, whether to proceed at all, in talking about these images as artworks. What do you think? Can we talk about the aesthetics of these pictures? Are we required to condemn them? Do ethics have any jurisdiction over taste? Or erotics?
