One of the first photographers to allegedly take nude pictures of Lindsay Lohan says the movie star is “degrading” herself by posing for Playboy.
Harvey Edwards, who is best known for the world famous “Leg Warmers” photograph, says he had Lindsay pose for what he calls “tasteful art” five years ago.
The acclaimed photographer says he asked the Mean Girls star to pose for him al naturale, because “she’s beautiful and she’s a talented actress.”
But as you can see in these photographs, Lindsay’s face, breasts and other lady parts are not shown. “I didn’t want people to know that was Lindsay naked. I wanted it to be a work of art,” the 65-year-old photographer tells RumorFix in an exclusive interview.
Harvey says that Lindsay was very comfortable being naked and she brought her mom, Dina, to the shoot. He says both mom and daughter were happy with the outcome.
But five years later, Lindsay is going full frontal for Playboy and Harvey says “It’s a mistake!” Although she may be in need of money, Harvey says, “I think she is extremely talented — I think she doesn’t have to do it. I don’t believe that people pick up Playboy as an art magazine. I believe they only pick it up to get their jollies!”
The photographer, who says people buy the magazine to see “t*ts and pubic hair,” concludes, “I feel it’s degrading to her to do that — especially on a level of working as an actress.”
UPDATE: Lindsay’s rep is denying that Lindsay ever took nudes with Harvey and Dina is denying every speaking a word to him.
