Art Personified: Kim Kardashian Paper Magazine Photos

This week, Paper magazine released several racy photos of reality TV star, Kim Kardashian for its Winter 2014 issue. The shots were taken by legendary French photographer Jean-Paul Goude, titled "break the Internet" and has received a lot of criticism from celebrity for being unrealistic and overly airbrushed.

While some celebrities have come out stating that the photos are inappropriate as Kim is mother to 18 month old North West, others have defended her stating that the photos are a form of art. One of Kim's bestie, Jonathan Cheban, in a statement to bossip.com said "Paper is one of the artsiest magazines and has a legendary reputation for being creative and edgy".

Frankly speaking, when an artist paints a portrait of a naked women, it is an expression of art, right? So, my question is, are these photographed images also considered art?
