firecat: red panda looking happy (Default)

Subject: Sexy pix of fat femmes and hunky men, designed like perfume ads. (No naughty bits, but probably not appropriate for a public workspace.)
Jes Baker and Liora K (J+L) have teamed produce a series of "advertisements" that challenge what body types are permissibly desirable in media. By borrowing the theme of sensuality found in preexisting advertisements and using unconventional pairings of bodies, J+L have created a visually jarring and beautifully inclusive look into what we may not deem "Lustworthy", but, in reality, is."
I don't find it the least bit visually jarring, but I guess it is when compared to similar mainstream ads.

Phew those are some smoking pictures. Particularly the one where the woman somehow is looking right at me and demurely looking at nobody.

I think that is a good photo shoot. Compared to what normally advertises fragrance, that would probably father better attention.

lilacsigil: 12 Apostles rocks, text "Rock On" (12 Apostles)
From: [personal profile] lilacsigil
The only jarring thing to me is to compare it to most ads featuring non-celebrity women: here the female actor is fully aware of herself and the camera, confident and sexual rather than placed on display.
