Beautiful portraits of women by Lisa Brice I got from The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2018/may/19/lady-in-blue-the-nudes-of-lisa-brice-in-pictures).
Pleasure of the subjects, the viewer's not sought >>> Lady in blue: the nudes of Lisa Brice – in pictures https://t.co/oX0GOepB6T

I got very attracted by them because, in the newspaper’s words,
“Whether her figures are undressing or enjoying a cigarette, “they are not presenting themselves for the pleasure of the viewer – their own pleasure is paramount”.
I mean, the pleasure of the viewer is not sought when the artists paints her nudes, and a sense of pleasure is achieved nonetheless (of course) for the viewers. To me, this is in a way, a definition of not porno.
