This Portrait of Stormy Daniels as the Virgin Mary Is Blowing up the Internet
The feminist porn star Stormy Daniels this time, as the Virgin Mary?

The feminist porn star Stormy Daniels, who famously had an affair with Donald Trump, is at it again – this time, as the Virgin Mary?
“Virgin,” a show of photographs by Nika Nesgoda, recently opened at the Spur, a co-working space in New York City.
With a composition that is inspired by Caravaggio (the artist famously used a prostitute to model for “Death of the Virgin” in 1606), Nesgoda had Stormy – along 15 other porn stars – as religious figures.
“Stormy doesn’t care what other people think of her. She’s a free spirit,”
Nesgoda told The Post.“My show’s a playful look at art history. Pornography is art that we deem excessive in a way.
Throughout history, women were seen as virgins or whores. I’m not trying to be ironic. The way I see it, with art you look at something and make a judgment whether you like it or not — but things are not always what they seem.”
