Can you really consider this art?

Hey everyone,

I recently came across this:

Do you really think this can be classified and considered as art? The photographer considers herself an artist, but to me it just It's like a gimmick...the main point she makes in her photos feels like "look at me, I'm attractive and naked". Without that, there's nothing to the photos.

What I think? Not art. Curious to hear what you all think about this.

Art is subjective...I may not think something is art while another person does.

Erica Simone is highly artistic and can take incredible photos..these are NOT some of those. I think she did herself a great disservice by doing this set of photographs. If you look on her web-site she explains why she did the nude photos in New York. It is under "Artist Statement". Regardless of her reasoning, I still honestly feel these pictures take away from the work she has done and is capable of doing. That is just a personal preference though and there are many out there who would disagree with me.

Here is a link to her web-site for reference. I encourage you to cruise around it if you haven't. She is a talented photographer overall.
BTW - Welcome to the site! Are you a photographer yourself? I take a great interest in photography. Far from professional but I do enjoy it!
