Natalia Photographed by Steven Meisel from the new ACNE Paper "Men may find an isolated photo of a curvy ***, or big breasts , or a big penis to be exciting.But were that image associated with a face the appeal might be lost. Beauty can be partial . Prurient interest may be highly specialized and localized. This is the most difficult issue involving erotica. One man's art is another man's porn....That which doesn't share our own tastes is likely to be perceived as pornographic and that which appeals to us is likely to be given a pass as art."

“So I would love to get an award for making people have more sex through my images. It would be a great award. Imagine the design of that award!”
Another reason to love Acne Paper. Besides having some of the most evocative photography around, this issue has an amazing interview with everyone’s favorite French editor talking to Thomas Persson and Jonny Johansson. Is it possible to adore her even more after reading this? Yes, it totally is…
Torontonians, which store carries this mag? I have definitely seen the last issue Acne Paper in some store here, but I didn't buy it. Now I can't remember where I saw it and I want the new issue! Any help would be great!
