Women in blue

Beautiful portraits of women by Lisa Brice I got from The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2018/may/19/lady-in-blue-the-nudes-of-lisa-brice-in-pictures).

I got very attracted by them because, in the newspaper’s words,

“Whether her figures are undressing or enjoying a cigarette, “they are not presenting themselves for the pleasure of the viewer — their own pleasure is paramount”.

Lady in blue: the nudes of Lisa Brice — in pictures. The Guardian.

I mean, the pleasure of the viewer is not sought when the artists paints her nudes, and a sense of pleasure is achieved nonetheless (of course) for the viewers. To me, this is in a way, a definition of not porno.
