Whereas the worshipper before the Virgin in Majesty is the servant of the Lord and Lady whose presence the statue conveys, the actors in the pornographic film or photograph are servants of the pornographer and viewer who summon and pay for their presence.Like the trucker with a family on both coasts, I'm trying to please two blogs. This can't last. It's unnatural.
The medium which seems to represent 'individuals' - the photography of fashion and pornography – in fact imposes sterotypes for replication in social reality. Yet the icon, which makes no pretence at physical literalism, allows the viewer the freedom to find the individual beauty of particular human beings.
P.S. Does this post mean people will find my blog when they search for pornography?
