(Warning: most links contain artistic nudes) In February, Chicago curator Paul-David Young announced a gallery show
featuring found, sometimes nude self portraits from an unknown artist. Claiming to not know the identity of the artist, Young romanticized the unknown origins of the photos, implied the artist was impossible to find, and drew parallels with the Vivian Maier
story. After some light digging, however, Animal New York
was quickly able to identify the subject as digital artist Molly Soda
, who has a popular presence on YouTube
and Tumblr. [more inside]

is the ongoing project of Minneapolis-based photographer Matt Blum
. He describes it as "a series of nudes of normal people." The rules: no models, no makeup and no glamour. He has been working on it since 2005.

He liked blue.
In fact, he patented his own blue
. He like to claim that he could fly unaided.
There was a movie
. In it, he colored naked women blue and had them make a painting
. The film treated this comically, and he was crushed. Two weeks after the film opened, he died of a heart attack.

All The Nudes That Are Fit To Print:
It's no exaggeration to say La Repubblica
is Italy's finest newspaper. It's liberal, modern, intelligent and independent. Along with Spain's El Pais
; France's Libération
and Le Monde
; the UK's Guardian
; Germany's Die Zeit
and Portugal's Público
, it's one of the mainstays of the European Left and Centre-Left. And yet its website offers calendars
in the, er, Pirelli
tradition of time-keeping. Imagine the New York Times
being similarly... liberal. Can soft prOn and serious reporting live together? Is it an Italian thing? The only other example I can think of is Spain's Interviú
, a magazine which in its heyday mixed superb (again, left-leaning) investigative journalism with politically incorrect - and photographically retouched - tits and ass. (NSFW, obviously, unless you're somewhere in Southern Europe or Louisiana.)

Mr. Spock's Nudes
David Bowman talks to 72-year-old Leonard Nimoy
about Leonard Cohen's music, the famous Vulcan hand sign, and his movie career, but especially about his new book
of female nude photographs, and how they relate to the Kabbalistic idea of Shekhinah. Nimoy comes across as more than a little flaky (but that's nothing new
); turns out he can also be thoughtful, perceptive, and dryly funny.
