I See an Armpit...What Do You See?

Mayumi Lake is a Chicago based artist who often explores ideas of sexuality and desire though her artwork. This past weekend I saw some of her photos from her exhibit Poo-Chi at NYC's Museum of Sex. Poo-Chi takes seemingly innocent parts of the adult body and transforms them into something... provocative looking. And I have to admit: initially I was fooled. I find it pretty amazing how our minds can transform parts of our bodies into something else entirely with an awkward gesture or the twist of a camera angle. So as graphic as some of these photos may seem, they actually aren't graphic at all. Its just your own dirty minds!
