Dean Keefer

Continuing in the male photography series on AZBlogX (there because of some full frontal shots): Dean Keefer, from back in the 1990s. Once again, I touch on the line between porn and “serious art”, customarily distinguished by intended function: porn intended to get the viewer off, serious art intended to arouse intellectual reflection and artistic appreciation. But of course these motives can be mixed, and in any case genres with some sort of utilitarian purpose can be accomplished with great skill and style. Tafelmusik can be far from trivial and ignorable, and technical manuals can be marvels of composition. (I don’t subscribe to the idea that porn is just bad art.)
