One of my favourite goth/fetish photographers is in big trouble. It seems, the state of Pennsylvania disagrees with him on what is and is not art. Because of legal reasons he can not give details of the case on any open forum, and out of respect for him, I will not either. Let's just say, he's right, they are pr*cks.(can I get away with that?).

For donating $25 you get an 8x10 archival quality print of your choice. This is the only way he will take any money to help his cause.

http://donate.studio3dom.com/

If you don't like the choices available, you can view his entire collection at www.studio3dom.com and drop him an email and he will make arrangements for any photo you like on his site.

Jeff is a great guy, and takes some really gorgeous photos....and he needs our help. It's not often you can buy a nice peice of artwork for $25!

P.S. His site contains adult content, so if you are under 18 don't look at it!!

Also, Mods, if this is inapropriate, i won't be hurt if you pull it.

I'm going to show this site to a friend and buy her whatever print she wants for her birthday. Or Christmas, one or the other. Hmm....I never got her a graduation present...... Anyway, I'm going to buy one. Keep bumping this, though. Maybe someone else will buy, too.

Wow....that guy is one incredible artist. His stuff kinda reminds me of the feeling Man Ray achieved with his photography back in the beginning of the Dadaist movement....not the same topic, of course, but the same feeling tongue.gif

I think it's total BULL that he's being prosecuted for his art. Those photos are 100% art, and I can't believe that the tightwads in PA would be so naive as to think that someone who shows that much sensitivity and vision should be fined or sentenced to prison time for openly displaying things with that much beauty. I mean, christ, I've seen stuff just as bad in Rob Zombie or Marilyn Manson videos, and you don't see THEM getting pulled up in front of the courts all the time. Well....a couple of times but those are on TV and are internationally shown in people's homes. This guy just does shoots for the internet, for magazines....FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE THEM! Nobody's forcing them to look, no children would be harmed, and what gives, huh?

The bf brings up an astute point: he figures the PA people just want to use him as a patsy and they figure they can get away with it because he can't afford the court fees. If they can get away with it, there'll be presidence (sp?) for future cases where they want to ban some more wealthy artist they disapprove of.


THIS MUST BE STOPPED!!!

Okay, I've decided. I'm going to buy Jess one for her graduation, and one for Christmas. Then I'll have the Snowdrop "But I don't even know if you're a boy or a girl" shirt, the scarf with the geisha on it, and the art set for her for her birthday, the runes and the picture for her graduation, and the Samuri Lapan shirt and the other picture for her for Christmas. That sound like good presents to ya'll?

Two-reason post. First to bump, second to pop in some interesting tied-in information.

I was on the bus this morning on my way to work, and I saw some paper on the floor...someone had printed out an article from ABCNews.com, and I thought I'd put it in here so everyone could enjoy the parallels.

Rob Zicari and his fiancee, Janet Romano, are facing the first major federal prosecution for obscenity in more than a decade. They face 10 counts relating to the production and distribution by mail of obscene materials, and each could get 50 years in prison and a fine of up to $2.5 million.

"We're facing more time than the guy that they just arrested that was trying to sell the surface-to-air missile," said Zicari.

On April 8, law enforcement seized five movies produced by Zicari's California-based company, Extreme Associates, which bils itself as "the Hardest Hard Core on the Web."

One of the confiscated movies, Forced Entry[/], features three graphic scenes of women being spat upon, raped and murdered. [i]Extreme Teens #24 has adult women dressed up and acting like little girls in various hard-core pornographic scenes. We can't even tell you the title of one of the films.

'There's Nothing Wrong With What We Do'

Most Americans would probably find the content of the films disgusting. Zicari doesn't disagree -- but he says to each his own.

"There's nothing wrong with what we do," said Zicari. "[W]e're not drug dealers or murderers, you know. We make movies. That's it."

But for the Bush Administration, that's enough.

"Obscenities have always been a priority of the attorney general," said Mary Beth Buchanan, U.S. attorney for western Pennsylvania (emphasis mine). "[A]nd he has asked each U.S. attorney to make that our priority as well."

Buchanan is the lead prosecutor on the case against Zicari. So jurors in Pittsburgh will have to decide if Zicari's movies fit the legal definition of obscenity.

"The material depicted in the videotapes produced by Extreme Associates is extremely vile, degrading and extremely offensive to women," Buchanan said.

The nature of Extreme Associates' movies makes it an ideal target for Attorney General John Ashcroft's Justice Department's openin salvo in its long-anticipated war on obscenity.

Ashcroft had planned on launching the anti-obscenity initiative back in 2001, but was sidetracked by the 9/11 terror attacks. Now the issue is once again a priority for the Justice Department.

"I can tell you that as long as I'm chief of the section, the section will work very hard to prosecute obscenity cases along with child pornography, another important focus for us," said Andrew Oosterbaan, chief of the Justice Department's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section.

"This is about a priority for the country. This is something the country wants prosecuted and therefore we're prosecuting it."

There's more to the article... Click Here to read the entire thing.


Isn't it interesting that there's ANOTHER situation going on in Pennsylvania? and so closely on the heels of the photography incidence? Granted, porn movies are different from artistic goth/fetish photography, but I don't like the way this is heading, personally.
