Fastest 404 ever.
Nudity in any form is wrong.

Especially in the shower.

Okay, time to fess up. Surely there are some MeFiers in some of those pictures.

I'm not totally certain, but the naked guy on the right looks like a MeFi user.

Er, I meant the naked guy on the LEFT!

Oh, this is that guy who is getting massive hype for inventing flash mobs of naked people -- he did the middle of some street or other in some town, right? I don't see the appeal, myself.

Also, why are so-called serious photographers putting such blurry, puny renditions of their work on the web, especially in bad flash interfaces? It really doesn't reflect well on them as professionals. Guys, take a cue from the porn: big honkin' JPEGs are a good thing.

I take all my cues from the porn.

I'm guessing they're against the (purported) evils of right-click, save-as. Or somesuch.

Me, I figure if somebody actually wants one of my crappy snapshots in full 1600*1200 glory, they're welcome to it...

What do they have against *thumbnails*, though? A little '+' or file folder icon doesn't tell me why I'd wanna click on it, and if you'd rather force a sense of narrative structure/mystery/suspense on me, there's better ways of doing it...

Yet another candidate for most gratuitous use of flash, when Gallery is most appropriate.

I'm with you majick. I think artists who put crappy little copies of their images on the web are missing the point of this distribution system: letting more people see your work at its best. Artists chince in this regard seem self-absorbed and/or money-centered, as in "I must keep control of my work or it will spread like wildfire!"

Little-known artist should be thinking of web appearances as their moment to be seen, because for 95% of them this is it. Look good now. One of my pet peeve, I guess.

Hey, here's a picture of me naked in the park! Might as well drop your jaws and bug out your eyes now to save time.

Yo, don't fuck with the (design) work of Jennifer Sharpe.
