The fine line between art and porn

 

Hester Scheurwater
Bored by and angry about the mass medias perception of a woman’s body as a fake and photoshoped image, Hester Scheurwater started her provocative project on Facebook.
A Self-obsessed iPhone series, which explores her desires, obsessions and fears. The explicit imagery shocked many and fueled debate on the sexualization of society. https://www.facebook.com/hesterl.scheurwater

Paul Kooiker
Exploring various aspects of the theme of looking: voyeurism, shame and distance. His work can be seen as a continuation of an old tradition focusing on the relationship between the artist and the model, the observer and the observed. http://www.paulkooiker.com/
