Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

The gallery upload has the following text:
Does this image contain 'mature content'?
Mature content cannot be seen by non-members visiting the site.


It obviously cannot be a perfect filter. Something which would be considered 'mature content' in one country/culture is not necessarily 'mature content' in another one. Much is left for the individual to judge, and the best filter in the end is for anyone to ignore what they wish to not see.

Even though I have the filter "on", I don't feel I can share this website with my grandchildren. One of them is a budding photographer but until she is an adult, I hope she never sees this website. That is a shame because otherwise it is very good site for creative photography.

Oh yes, I watch all the time, I don't mind a bit of political incorrectness ... like Michael Gove for instance ... I meant it was my error to comment on Bible Belt be morality

while the nudes here are almost all juvenile titillation, I would indeed be a lot more worried about exposing my children to the crass consumerism rampant here than yet another oiled, half-shadowed boob in front of a half-drawn window curtain.

ok, i am about to close this thread.
it stopped being useful a while back...nothing is going to be resolved and the bottom line is that any changes will come from the boss and nowhere else.
