In class, we discussed John Currin's painting The Cripple. This painting prompted a brief class discussion about sexuality and disabilities. I happened to find a write up about Robert Coombs, a photographer who suffered a devastating accident that left him paralyzed, and his dedication to making disabilities sexy (http://www.artprize.org/robert-coombs/2012/disabilities-and-sexuality). This photographer chose to showcase himself and other people with disabilities in the nude. These nudes are deliberately making a statement of "look at me", "look at my body", "sexually fantasize about my nude body". On the video, Coombs discusses his desire to be looked at in a sexual manner.
