If given a choice, I will always choose the photo that addresses the viewer directly. Next in the hierarchy of exploitation, I tend to choose the most vulgar, exploitative, demeaning, humiliating or emotionally evocative shot. Failing that, I will always choose the absurd, silly or candid above the rest. If that’s not available, I’ll choose the photo that shows the model in pain, picking her nose or scratching her butt.
‘Cause it’s sexy as fuck, that’s why.
I get extra bonus points if I get the shot that contains all of the above. Haven’t gotten there yet though, dammit.
