There are a number of reasons to think twice or three times, or four times, or fifty times before sending a nude photo of yourself to someone electronically. But, if you're under the age of 18, there's at least one big, glaring, serious reason: you and the recipient could be charged with trafficking child pornography. If you think this sounds crazy, it is exactly what happened in Greensburg, Pennsylvania after two teenage girls send nude photos to some teenage boys.
Painter Joan Semmel shakes up our preconceived notions of the contemporary self-portrait by translating hers into paint. Her latest exhibition at the Bronx Museum, entitled, "The Lucid Eye," depicts the aging process with honesty and -- dare we say -- defiance. In a video interview with Artforum, the artist says, "One of the reasons I decided to use myself, was that I wanted to be a specific body
This cover story appeared in the magazine on Sept. While her mother and father conversed with friends and admirers, Jessie orbited the four rooms in her red dress, fielding questions from strangers eager to know more about her parents. Beneath a portrait of himself in the water, Emmett shrugged off the stares and expressed a typical teen-age frame of mind.

In past decades the process, the meaning and the value of the self-portrait has evolved hugely, especially for female artists. Early examples like Claude Cahun introduced a hybrid of surrealism and gender experimentation into the art scene, while contemporaries like the late-Jo Spence used their images to document their personal battles with identity and illness. Shot between andher images can be traced back to her childhood where — feeling depressed as a young woman — the photographer would dress herself up as different characters as a form of escapism.
Hour after hour Michael Bach crouched, naked and alone, in a musty, dirt-floor storage area in a corner of the basement of his row house. Illuminated by a bare watt light bulb, he trained a Wisner 8x10 view camera on his middle-aged body — hairy, flabby and graying — and let the magic of a minute exposure create spectral black-and-white images that emerged from a tray of developer in a homemade basement darkroom. In July he got an Apple iPhone 6 and his pursuit of the ineffable discoveries made in nude self-portraiture has intensified with the super-fast and super-cheap digital technology.
Women artists painting themselves was nothing new, but they were expected to pose as conventional subjects, dressed appropriately in their Sunday best. Yet here was Knight with her back to the viewer, wearing lumpy work clothes and flourishing the tools of her trade: a canvas and brush.

Here I artistically picture my acne by jabbing a biro at the page. Roaccutane cured my acne temporarilybut left the rest of me covered in angry eczema. The pill gave me boobs and more hormones than I possibly know what to do with.
