How on Earth do you figure this is a constructive, thoughtful, helpful comment? How on Earth do you figure that the horror/macabre photography gallery isn't worthy of exposure? How on Earth did you get by this far on that wretched attitude?

Just because you don't like something doesn't mean that it is any less valid than another form of art. Or literature. Or person.

Besides all of that:

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?

I have to agree with Mary-Darwin. Images of TORTURE are not "art" or "literature" or "person" (whatever that means). In most people they illicit disgust. In a few, they satisfy prurient tendencies. You need to ask yourself why you find images of this kind attractive and "worthy of exposure". This is not cosplay. This stuff really happens in real life. Do you consider photos from the Holocaust just "another form of art. Or literature. Or person" too?

Well, I won't waste my time on your invalid argument so just check out my reply to ~Mary-Darwin here comments.deviantart.com/1/2018... this would be a similar reply to your comment.

And there's a BIG difference between taking photographs of people acting as they're being tortured and taking photographs of people being really tortured. The last case is called photo-journalistic photography.

Well I'm glad you enjoy images of torture - real or simulated. I'm also glad I don't know you.

And who said that I enjoy images of torture? Well, you just stated that you don't know me, then you can't state what I enjoy and what I don't. How you don't perceive it? :lol:

Just because it's not something you like to look at doesn't mean that it is less than something else. That includes PEOPLE - if you look at someone, and you realize they have a birth mark on their face that covers half of it, that doesn't make him any less of a person. 

You have no right to be attacking my opinion. I never attacked yours. I simply laid out the FAQ for the deviant with the problem and let it be at that. I have never met you, I have no desire to quarrel with you, and I will continue to feel that all forms of art are art - you're way out of line, you're blowing it out of proportion. There is a line which fake and real are divided by - you can tell things like this are fake. You could never take away the gut wrenching horror of a Holocaust photograph. 

I know why I find images like this ' attractive ' and ' worthy '. Because I know the difference between REAL and FANTASY. I know this didn't happen. And you need to realize that they have every right to post on this site. And that you don't need to white knight your way around the comments section dragging up garbage that's months past.

May I refer you to the FAQ as well?

Perhaps my attitude comes from having a real life experience similar to the image depicted. Pray it never happens to you, okay? I doubt you would have the same appreciation for this type of "art" then.

You don't know me. You don't know if I have had similar experiences. And I have, but I still appreciate every type of art. Your welcome to your opinion, but you're not welcome to put it on the daily deviation, as the FAQ clearly states. If you have so much of a problem with the piece that you feel the need to be negative and derogatory, you may, by all means, discuss it with me personally. But the artist didn't ask for the feature, and therefore there is no reason to leave commentary on their piece like such. Enjoy your day.

An how would you like it if something like this happened to you - as it did to me. You're celebrating dementia by honoring this "art" . I will never apologize for my attitude, okay?

Well, you could have phrased the same ideas into a more polite comment, telling people, constructively, WHAT about this you find wrong. Also, how am I celebrating dementia? It has a disturbing image warning, if you're sensitive to disturbing images, than don't click display.

You obviously celebrate dementia because you yourself are demented. FYI This image does NOT have a disturbing image warning. Perhaps YOU should should have phrased your comment in a more informed manner.

'Mature Content Filter is On '

That's for disturbing images
Reply
:iconmary-darwin:
Mary-Darwin Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's not a disturbing image warning. Mature content is usually used to denote nudity or sexual content. I'm not going to keep the mature content filter on, as you suggest, because nudity is sometimes depicted in good art. So thanks for the suggestion but it's ridiculous. Here's the thing though; I'm not disturbed by the image. I'm disturbed by people like you who consider this trash as fine art and even honor it with a DD.

Wow, I came here to look at this artwork again and then I saw your comments. 

Dear, it seems that you don't really understand what is art. Art is a means of expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form, and also one of the most effective means of expression. That photograph is definitely art. Why? Because it expresses strong feelings and it also causes strong sensations in us and communicates dark/guilty side of the person and the pain of another.

Art causes people to look a little closer. To look closer at the social issues, at other people and their emotions, at the environment that surround them, and the everyday objects and life forms around them. It helps them see what is there but not easily perceived.

Do you think that every piece of art should be cute and positive? No my dear, just no. Artists have also the right to communicate "negative" feelings such as pain and horror. And not everybody will really understand what's their purpose of making such things. 

Art causes positive and also negative reactions. This photograph has caused a negative reaction in you and led you to say that it's ridiculous. Simply because this kind of art is not for you and because you can't appreciate or understand the true meaning of it. Or maybe you just thought differently about it and you probably mixed it with the reality. Yes, some people make this kind of horror photographs to represent the reality and they're doing it very well. What if they have never made them? We probably would never know how people do feel in these situations and how it happens. They have the right to create what they desire and you have no right to tell them what is considered art and what is not.

Look, I didn't recommend it for a DD, and I never said it was FINE art. But pretty much what you're saying is that it can't be art if it depict gore and/or torture.

Actually, again, you're incorrect. Mature content is for many things. 

  • Nudity: If your work contains nudity, revealing the genitalia of a model or character, you should assign this tag.
  • Sexual Themes: References to sex or overt sexuality, including sexually based humor. This category also covers images in which the character or model has taken a sexually provocative pose.
  • Violence/Gore: This refers to overtly realistic bloody or violent imagery, generally associated with horror and macabre, but can also apply to photojournalism or written work.
  • Strong Language: Can be applied to deviations containing profanity, vulgarity, and otherwise coarse or offensive language at the discretion of the submitter.
  • Ideologically Sensitive: If your work may be construed as offensive toward a person or a group of people due to a religious, political, social, or other belief please utilize this tag. This does not mean you are permitted to submit hate propaganda or hate art, which strongly implies and encourages violent acts against any of the above individuals or groups. 

Seems to me you find this image Ideologically Sensitive. Which is why there is a mature filter.
