Taryn Andreatta Interview
Taryn Andreatta & Anne on Artistic Nudity, the Female Body, Feminism & Divinity AOC Sensually Yours
ALL Taryn Andrietta
Note | Nudity Two weeks ago I posted model Taryn Andreatta’s images from ‘The Offering’, as they appeared on GQ Italia’s website, lensed by photographers Mark Sink & Kristin Hatgi. Many readers were very impacted by ‘The Offering’ — women as much as men.
Anne: How do you feel about the term ‘sex object’ vs ‘sex symbol’ when applied to women? Is there a difference?
Taryn: Sex object being the more derogatory of the two and probably a more recent term in history does not generate strong feminine ideals. Sex symbol on the other hand, as first given to Marilyn Monroe or Brigitte Bardot, is a potent reference to a women’s sexual ferocity or level of sex appeal according to another’s erotic preferences. Sex Symbols, labeled by our world’s perspective, are based on sociological and biological factors but also integrate the world’s need for an all-encompassing woman to enchant with powerful feminine energy and then to later become notably symbolic.
Anne: What role, then, do women play in your perspective, with regard to their masculine counterpart?

Taryn Andreatta Love Style
Anne: Taryn, I noticed a repost of your nude Love Magazine photo shoot on a major fashion blog and because we're friends, I thought you may want to discuss the shoot and the impact it's had, while it continues to attract more publicity.
Why do you think it has gained so much attention?
Taryn: Besides the semi-controversy of it being completely nude there was some raw truth, strength, and vulnerability in that shoot. Posing au naturel was probably the most honest thing I've ever done. It was as much liberating as it was revealing of who I am and always will be. I hope people can see the value in that.
Anne: The images are called a "fan tribute". Was that your intent?
Taryn: We intended on doing an homage to Helmut Newton and to also recognize the forward thinking of Love magazine and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
However, to be called a "fan tribute" is a bit of a misnomer.
It's not that I object to that term but on a certain level Akiss (Paraskevopoulos) and I did it for ourselves, not for the recognition of being a "fan."
