Artsy, Non-Celebrity Nude Site Enlivens Wednesday Afternoon
Running celebrity nudes was making us feel a little cheap, but we have learned to just put the words "celebrity nudes" in our posts -- more than once if possible! Celebrity nudes! -- and then run, or link to, any old nudes. Fortunately today we have a project of some genuinely non-prurient interest: the German site Naked People, which shows normal everyday Fritzes and Gretchens of various sizes and ages, first fully clothed, then, when you click on them, slowly Flash-fading to naked. It's great if you like computer art; it's also great if you like different body types than softcore sites normally provide. The photographer, Sebastian Kempa, maintains a MySpace page for discussion of the project (in German). Images via NakedPeople.de, h/t omg blog.
