Daily Deviation

Given 2009-11-17
took her nowhere by ~andreaspuhl The suggester says, "What catches the eye first in this photograph is the effective contrast between the skintones of the two models, resembling chess figures. What's most amazing about this photo, though, is the composition - their bodies' position reveals such intimacy that one cannot help but feel moved by the affection of their touch. The artist manages to achieve this emotionality while highlighting the natural grace of the models." ( Suggested by drop-asd and Featured by Nyx-Valentine )

I'm pretty sure if either of the models found this "humiliating" they wouldn't have posed for the photo. I love this picture. Sensual, but not overly sexual. There still so much left to the imagination.

Steer clear of miscegeny, especially with African Americans. Want proof? Check the CDC site on AIDS specifically for them:

Literal Quote: "1 in 16 Black men will be diagnosed with HIV at some point in his lifetime..."

Don't look at me, look at the CDC if you want to claim racism.

This photo is stunning. I love how you've made sensual and sexual and yet not explicit or trashy in any way. It's beautiful and simple and keeps sex as a beautiful thing, not something to just be exploited. Very well done!

A really beautiful picture, in every sens of it.
On a photographic side first: the light is just right as to enlight the bodies and make the curves and shapes stand out. Also the contrast, well the obvious contrast between skintones, and also with background. Finally, you created the perfect axe of composition, going from top left corner to right bottom corner, which is the natural path our eyes will take when looking at something. And since this axe goes through their lips and along the bodies, it just perfect.

As for the emotional side, well, you can actually feel the love here. You see the drive, the need to touch, feel, be with the other.

Truly beautiful.

I'm really sorry that near all the comments on your ART had to be a dispute on racism, and no I will not fuel that fire. Your art however is truly amazing. As someone pointed out before, it has brilliant contrast both in the skin tones and lighting. Very well done. Another thing I applaud is they way you have captured it-in such a way that it feels gentle-smooth. I hate seeing "art," on DA that is more pornographic than anything. But you have placed the bodies in such a manner that it looks and feels like sweet, passionate love. Once again Great job!
