Nipples at the Met

Some of the many nipples in the Met's collection, images care of Nipples at the Met

James Cabot Ewart’s Nipples at the Met website is fairly self explanatory.  He’s taking happy snaps of each and every human nipple in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection (that’s 832 nipples and counting).  And why is Ewart so interested in this part of our anatomy?  “Nipples are a constant” he says. “[they are] universal throughout time, culture and sex. Sure, the same can be said about a foot, a knee or a bellybutton, but I chose nipples because hey, sex sells and the Met has no shortage of nipples”.   Read his full interview about the project with The Huffington Post here.
