Shedworks / uncommon scenes. Naked women. In run down, abandoned buildings. In german. What else do you need to know? NSFW, probably, but that really depends on where you work.

Very cool, and safe for my work, also.

Why are there no guys in these sheds?

Very cool nude studies presented in post-industrial scenes. Love it.

OT/ What is this "work" thing everyone keeps talking about?

there are, but it does seem to be much more slanted toward female nudes though... fine by me. The Female form always seemed more pleasing to me anyhow, even from a purely aesthetic standpoint.

Beautiful pictures. Good link, signal.

Where should I send food?

Zen: I'm assuming that since the site is in german, the chicks are not americans, meaning that they are not corpulent by default.

A number of the women photographed by the same guy as the male nude phylum sinter linked to are quite shapely (or, as delmoi would have it, "corpulent.")

For some reason when I first glanced at Signal's FPP, I thought it read that these were homeless naked women. And I was thinkin' is this the new way photographers find thin models? Then I read it again and realized they're just naked women being shot in condemned buildings, starving themselves for purposes of the camera, not having their pictures taken so they don't starve.

Either way, when you think about it, it's pretty sad. So yeah. Where do we send food?

So ZachsMind likes the fat girls?

More importantly, can we drop the assumption that any thin woman is unhealthy, suffering from body image problems, and starving herself?

For those bored with looking at naked women in condemned buildings you might want to check out the photographer who inspires a lot of this art school foolishness: Ralph Eugene Meatyard. He was producing artful images of strange folks (many times with creepy masks) in gutted buildings probably before many of these men photographers were born.

Michael, I appreciate healthy women. Bones protruding from under skin isn't healthy. Neither is obesity. Most anything in between is fine. Most of the women in these photos are unheathfully thin. I don't understand how some find extraordinarily thin women so attractive.

I was being glib. I agree that healthy is a good descriptor for attractive women, but kickingtheground makes a very good point. Thin can be very healthy, bones protruding or not. I also didn't think that most of the women in the photographs were exceptionally thin. A few, yes, but not all by any means.

Finally a post with meaningful social import...Good one, Signal.
