I am puzzled by the butt orientation that has set in the glamour & nude section on the other side of the Atlantic ocean in the USA.

Lately not the face of the model is the most expressive part of the body but more and more the butt and it sticking out right into the face. :mrgreen:

So what happend in the USA that butt is now the main communication tool. I have always to think of bonobo when I this way of posing.

I noticed that, too. I like it.

Some excellent examples of the craft: (WARNING, these are from G&N section!)

Its like a big butt means you look sexy or something. I don't really understand it, yes a nice rear is great for some modeling but making it the object of obsession is beyond me.

I doubt that photographers wish to represent butts as means of expression by the model. (What would the model's message be?!) They just like things that are soft, smooth, symmetrical, and rounded.

Please take this in the good-natured way it is given. Well... DUH! :)

Yeah I don't get it either, I understand wide hips are supposed to be a sign of good fertility in some cultures but this craze is just ridiculous

Whatever it is, I hope it continues. Yes, I have noticed that I am the only one who will admit this. C'mon guys!

It might be tied to the Kardashian phenomenon, which is equally inexplicable to many. I think there is a faction of men who like big butts. They've always been there. They're just getting their day in the sun.

I've always been a butt man. And am glad though that flat butts aren't the craze anymore.

The opposite here; several of my regular models want shots like that, and pose for them without me even asking.

What the hen is a Kardashian? Sounds like a Jeff Foxworthy-ism. As in: "I just bought a 32 Buick. It still has the car-dash-in!"

Hominids have been walking upright for about 3 million years. I am quite positive butts were significant in attracting suitors at least that long ago. If my dogs are any indication, this phenomenon is mammal-wide, and likely to continue.

You seem to entirely miss the fact that 100%, 1/1, EVERY STINKING ONE OF THEM, is a fraction, too. You also are lost somewhere in deep left field if you think this applies only to men.

I think that you may be misunderstanding the objective of the photographers. Often times, a photo is not used to express something that the model wants to express. Rather, it is often used to evoke feelings of sexual desire and lust on the part of those who view the photos. Photos that showcase the butt in a prominent way often do this quite effectively.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

So, mmmfotografie, you were right on target with bonobos.
