    Some of these poses are very cool. But is this art, voyeurism, does it matter?

    Here's a different selection - Pose 1 (one of the tamest) is my fave.

    Apart from the poses: this is excellent photography. The light is great, from what I can see. I would not want to venture into a discussion over art/voyeurism, since in my humble view all visual art is there for the sole purpose of being looked at. It is there to stimulate one's senses, one way or another. We are all voyeurs, since we look at things ..... maybe not all sexual, but in the true sense of the word .....

    If anything, I would call it exhibitionism, more than voyeurism. "Look at me being naked while I do something!" (I know some people do yoga nude, so its not like she is doing some everyday task nude, just to show being nude).

    As for the images (like Marko said) #1 is great, but many of them could use better lighting from the front on her face. (IMO)

    As I see it, this was never intended to be a photo shoot of a person so much as a photo shoot of a created sculpture. The artist is the yoga practitioner, and the sculpture is photographed as a piece of art, with the lights set to show off planes and angles as if the model was constructed of marble rather than skin and bone.

    What she said.

    When we spend too much time looking at our own photography, we don't learn how to look at the work of others.

    I suspect Mr. Hegre thinks upon it as art. In fact, he likely believes it to be art with a capitol "A". I would concur.
