More Mommy Porn

July 19, 2006

If you aren’t already sick of looking at naked mommy photos, here is another one in New York Magazine. Apparently, the picture is for an article on UrbanBaby, a website of New York mothers.

I thought the photo of the pregnant tired city mom with a toddler hanging off her boob was rather artistic — and realistic! But, it’s always interesting to read the reactions of the child-free crowd such as Salon Broadsheet’s Rebecca Traister:

What is up with the photographs illustrating this piece? Most notably, the one that kicks off the piece’s Web site layout? It’s part of a “My Name Is Mommy” series that runs through the piece, by Gail Albert Halaban, courtesy of the Robert Mann Gallery, so clearly it’s art, not taken specifically for this feature. And I suppose it does perfectly match the Gothic pitch of the rotted-out domestic landscape depicted in the story. But how many people are going to be reading the whole eight-page piece, and how many are going to be staring goggle-eyed at the creepily eroticized images of female torment depicted inside?

I won’t be reading the whole article because I don’t have time. But unless you’re creepy, I doubt you are going to “read” the article just to get off on these photos. Rest assured, Rebecca.
