Photographer of controversial Danish nudes speaks up against sexism! (pics)

The photo display may have been shut down, but Grafström refuses to be shut up!

One would think that Denmark would be free from sexual conventions, however Danish photographer Mathilde Grafström sparked a media firestorm when her photo exhibition at Nytorv Square, Copenhagen, titled “Female Beauty” was found to be “offensive”. Police closed down her show of nude, natural-looking women aimed at promoting a healthy body image and easing prudishness.

Grafström isn’t going down without a fight. Her cries have resounded through the internet sparking debate about whether conservatism is rising in Denmark. Furthermore, there has been a great deal of discussion on the differences between beauty and obscenity in the face of censorship laws.
