Aliaa Elmahdy, An Egyptian female activist sparked an intense online debate over the limits of personal expression in art this week, following the discovery of n*de photos the woman took and posted to her blog.
Aliaa Elmahdy, a 20-year-old college student and self-described “secular liberal feminist,” posted two n*de photos of herself on her blog, “A Rebel’s Diary,” last month. The young revolutionary’s photos were apparently discovered earlier this week by a Twitter user, who called them “brave.”
In one of the pics, Elmahdy is standing with her right foot perched one the bottom rung of a wooden stool. She is wearing lacy, thigh-high black stockings, red slippers – and nothing else.
The second photo is a three-part collage of the first, with yellow strips censoring out her crotch, mouth and eyes.
“The yellow rectangles on my eyes, mouth and sex organ resemble the censoring of our knowledge, expression and sexuality,” Elmahdy wrote on her blog, according to the Daily Beast.
