Ha ha, thanks a lot! I've just had a magazine article published that the editor received a complaint about!

"I think the images shown are inappropriate as they are revoltingly horrific in their content and quite unnecessary to show a technical technique in an RPS publication. My RPS journals are left where my grandchildren and great-grandchildren can pick them up and look at them and see good photography. These images are nightmarish and represent a poor taste that should be avoided.
It is a sad fact that purveyors of bad practices habitually try to push the limits of behaviour so ratcheting up the unacceptable. I think it is the job of the editor to set the boundaries and ensure that they are adhered to.
I sincerely hope that a new limit of poor taste has been set"

I take that as a massive compliment!

The job of the editor?

I think its the job of grandfather to not leave material laying around that even remotely could be deemed inappropriate for young children.

Silly me.....:rolleyes:

You won't like it, but I somehow agree with the complaint.
Those images are just sick and I wonder, what sort of mind is behind those edits.

Are you serious?

On that rationale every film director that has created a horror movie is sick in the head then??

I newer said nothing about "sick in the head" and sure there's also nothing illegal about those photos.
I just wonder, what's behind those edits. What drives someone to express himself like that.
And about horror movies; yes, I like good horror movies. But these days good horror movies are rare.
Most of them are just cheap and some of them are just sick and nothing more.
Hard to explain; apparently there is also nothing wrong and illegal in China about skinning alive puppys on festivals on the streets, but it's just sick and I wonder about a culture which approves this.

Yours is one point of view. This is just theater to me. I enjoy these images the way they are crafted. The way I see it, the real horrors of our culture--the destructive and insidious ones--are sold to us in the guise of human betterment while the truth remains hidden beneath seemingly more ordinary and righteous veneers.

Yes; it's my point of view. I force no one to agree with me.

Your honestly comparing these edits to skinning live dogs? You must live a delicate life

Hehe, no.
It was just an example, how different cultures have different measures, what's OK and what's not OK.

Sorry, only just seen the conversation about my images!

Mathmans - I don't mind you saying that at all. I enjoy creating images that shock people. Actually, I showed them to my aunt this weekend and she hated them. As do my mother and my wife. It seems a common theme that generally women hate them and men like them, although I have come across exceptions to this.

I'm not aware of anything dark and sick going on in my head - I do have boundaries. I have small children and would never use images of them to create my dark art, but images of myself and my friends and (adult) family are all fair game.

Also, they're a bit tongue in cheek - you wouldn't actually see someone eating their own face, or an arm frying itself in a pan....

Love hearing different opinions though, thanks!
