A cigarette? Really? How unsexy is that?

Yes... the inclusion of the cigarette does seem bizarre...!!!
No doubt I'm missing something glaringly obvious and "artistic"...

Up to through the 1960's smoking a cigarette was thought to be sexy.

I'm not sire what's passing for award winning photography these days, but if I see a movie has academy awards and high acclaims, I don't generally find them to my liking. Same with photography. Swimsuit models should be sexier, but that may just be due to my perverted sense of reality.

I usually like benjikan work, this is not one of my favorite. I was only comment on the statement that cig's aren't sexy. That having a cig in a picture would make it not sexy. When almost all the glamor pictures taken from the 30's through the 60's both male and female stars and models had a cig in the hand or mouth. Me, I not a cigarette smoker and glad that the fad has died out.

Actually, I like Benjikan's work. Not sure if you noticed but these swimsuit photos were shot by a guy by the name of Benjo Arwas.

Agree with you on the cigarette issue.
