Animalidad y desnudo. Proyecto fotográfico con peces.

Proyecto fotográfico de Denis Rouvre para campaña de dudosa o polémica credibilidad. O al menos esto opinan algunos sectores de la antrozoología más tendenciosa y proteccionista, quienes no acaban de entender cómo sensibilizar sobre el valor de la vida marina utilizando para ello cadáveres que remiten más bien a recursos alimenticios.
Ya habíamos comentado anteriormente, en relación a un proyecto de Dimitri Yeros que utilizábamos como ejemplo,  lo mucho que gusta a los artistas fotográficos asociar la fotografía de desnudo a la fotografía con animales, asociando los conceptos de animalidad y desnudez. En el caso que nos ocupa hoy, la desnudez de personajes más o menos célebres es reivindicativa (deberíamos dedicar una enciclopedia a las manifestaciones reivindicativas que recurren a la desnudez), y sus detractores más críticos encuentran dicha reivindicación un tanto paradójica (no sin razón).
Se trata de proteger los mares y sus recursos naturales, evidenciando en estas imágenes su falta de protección ante la intervención humana, lo cual pone en peligro la propia integridad humana, representada en toda su fragilidad por la desprotección de unos cuerpos desnudos que reivindican sus lazos con los océanos donde se originó la vida cubriéndose con los cuerpos de peces que ejercen de contraste icónico y simbólico.
No creo necesario volver a incidir en todo lo que dijimos sobre la cosificación de los animales, y en particular de los peces (tratados como "pescado", materia alimenticia genérica) porque ya lo hicimos en su momento a propósito de otro proyecto fotográfico de Carl Warner, y también hemos dado fé de la relación entre la simbología del cuerpo femenino y el medio marino (ver la entrada dedicada a este respecto, en aquella ocasión aprovechando la publicación de los trabajos de Natalia Avseenko en forma de reportaje fotográfico de la naturalista desnuda entre ballenas beluga en las frías aguas del Ártico)

Something fishy is going on! Gillian Anderson strips off to lead a host of stars posing with sea creatures for charity


If Gillian Anderson is a big fan of seafood, she certainly has taken her love to the next level.
The actress has stripped off to pose with a fishy friend for charity.
The X-Files star goes topless with, rather bizarrely, just a large conger eel wrapped around her neck to protect her modesty.

The 45-year-old was showing off her flat stomach and gorgeous figure for the photo, which saw her staring into the camera and wearing her blonde hair in an updo.
Gillian was just one of many stars who posed for the Fishlove campaign, against destructive fishing practices.
The Ghost Writer star Olivia Williams looks emotional as she clutches two sabre fishes in each hand, covering her breasts.

French actress Melanie Bernier and Portuguese beauty Barbara Cabrita somehow manage to make a European eel and a herring look sexy.
Meanwhile Wallander star Jeany Spark and The Beat That My Heart Skipped actress Aure Atika had no qualms about getting up close and personal with the sea life.
Jeany gladly held a stone bass against her face while Aure rested a pretty spotlight parrotfish on her shoulder.

The men starring in the shoot got even more creative when it came to their posing, with Jean-Marc Barr hugging a mako shark and Goldie cradling a redfish against his naked body.
This is the third campaign the charity has released, starring naked celebrities and marine life.
While this time around the images were shot by Denis Rouvre, the previous campaigns were shot by Rankin and Alan Gelati respectively.

Lizzy Jagger, Emilia Clarke and Sir Ben Kingsley were amongst the stars in Rankin’s shoot, while Michael Gambon headed up Gelati’s.
The Fishlover website explains: ‘The global marine ecosystem will collapse within a generation if unsustainable fishing practices are allowed to continue. The collapse of global fish stocks is one of the greatest ecological challenges we face today.
‘The good news is that it is a problem for which there is a relatively simple solution. With the right political decisions, we CAN save our seas so that they will be teeming with live for generations to come.’
