    Young man (Masters of Fine Art) showed his work- which I photographed.

    Please give us your initial reaction and what you like/don't like.

    BTW- the "tongue" is mean't to be "manipulated" as part of the piece in the gallery.

    just horrible - for me it is very repulsive

    (the art work - not the pictures!)

    Ok.. repulsion is a reaction.. and I'm sure the kid likes attention- even negative.

    Interesting concept, well executed - but not really my cup of tea. The tongue is a bit jarring. I'm curious, what title did he give it?

    I'm not sure of the name- but they are very heavy pieces.

    Is it classified as "obscenity?" It looks it.

    I think you've could have done a lot more and generated much more drama had you photographed the piece in a studio or at least in a controlled environment where you can manipulate the lighting.

    I only had an hour, and I did the best I could to shoot-pp-host-post.

    As the piece appears to be in different locations, I thought you had more time.
