Porn or Art?

A lot of the more modern fine art and documentary shots have nudity for one reason or another. I've shot some nude shots of other people for projects in college but the nudity has always been for a reason. My only idea about the reasoning behind this shot was to show the intimacy the photographer shares with his wife. Although it looks very staged and posed to me and not a shot that he has come across, or does his wife
actually sit like that on a daily basis? I don't think its porn or disgusting or particularly hard-hitting really but I suppose its because I have seen a lot of photography like this from other photographers who include a lot of expliicit nudity in their shots. I have a photography book called What is love, What is desire by William A Ewing which is a compilation of shots which contrast love and desire. They are all really arty shots and some would really border on the pornagraphic if it was not for the lightiing and reasoning behind them. I suppose its only porn if the intention is porn, if the intention is art photography then its art photography. There is a fine line and photography pushes the boundaries, its very suibjective.
