ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey gallery has filed a federal lawsuit over a city code violation it received for displaying artwork of a partially nude woman in its store window.

The Borghi Fine Art Gallery in Englewood sued last week, saying its constitutional rights were violated when it was issued a violation with fines of $1,250 per day and the threat of up to 90 days in jail over artwork showing a woman's bare buttocks.

City officials and code enforcement officer Walter Deptuch, who is also named in the suit, didn't immediately return phone calls and emails seeking comment Tuesday.

Where it is placed now does not seem to be a violate the code, looks like someone is being annoying.

That being said that does not look like art to me, but i dont think photographs are art.

I feel slightly better about this now, if only in a schadenfreudey kind of way.

People need to learn that in New Jersey, you have no constitutional rights because NJ doesn't abide by the Constitution.

FUCK NEW JERSEY.

It's a personal taste, photography can be beautiful but i still don't consider it art.   If you do that's fine i'm not going to force you to like what i do.

Fair enough. Debating what is and isn't 'art' is probably the most subjective discussion two people can have.

Then you would be wrong.
Photographs are indeed art due to the effort put into a good photo.
An example includes but is not limited to, Ansell Adams.

Never has such a small state thought it was such a big deal.



People from jersey move down here and you'd think they came from the center of the universe.

i spent a lot of years as a photographer, and i completely agree.

art is about creation.  photography is about capturing or synthesizing what is already there.  even though some art forms (sculpture, mosaic) bring expression out of existing materials, they are creating.  with certain rare exceptions, photography doesn't.

that's part of what i love about the medium, but it's a craft, not an art.
