Since I started doing serious photography I have heard people react on “all the nakedness” in my pictures. When saying that I must admit that I don’t get that reaction in Norway or any other Scandinavian country.
The first edition of “When the Crowd Cries” was exactly like on both Amazon and iBooks. When I added some pages with text in the second edition I got the message that the book wasn’t approved because of the cover photo.
Trying to discuss or even arguing with Apple is impossible so I had to change the cover photo (which make the title of the book meaningless).
I was tempted to just unpublish the iBooks edition but friends persuaded me not to.
Some people have seen the two different editions and asked me why. When I explain they all say the same; “In 2017?”.
Even in 1817 nude models were accepted!
And – in fact, there is not much nakedness in my pictures.
When I photograph women I am interested in capturing their naked soul.
Not the body!
A psychiatrist once said to me;
“People who see something pornographic in your pictures must be sick. Very sick!”
