Guest Photo of the Day: Pretending to be vulnerable

Pretending to be vulnerable, originally uploaded by Sol Lang.
Sol Lang is, hands down, one of my favorite photographers. He shoots primarily fine art nudes, so he's not someone to explore if you suffer from dermaphobia. But within that genre, he creates some absolutely beautiful work. The women are usually gorgeous, yes, but the ones I like best are the ones that also convey feeling, emotion, vulnerability, that see in the unclad human body not just physical beautiful but emotional resonance as well. They may be proud, maternal, self-possessed, playful, innocent, or sensual, but they are always compelling.
