Photos created in collaboration with Photography by Hanah Tepe, All rights reserved. 

Is the nude human figure itself a sexual object? How much does context play a role?

 

Is perception of a naked body influenced by the addition of bones?

 

What about flesh—a mummified cat, for instance, or a decapitated goat's head?

Is there a continuum of acceptability for these images, where some are more tasteful than others?

 

Or are they all tainted by the addition of visceral representations of death?
