Camus wrote that there is only one truly serious philosophical question—and that is suicide. “Judging whether or not life is worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy,” he writes in The Myth of Sisyphus. Those words were the first thing that came to mind when I saw the photo spread that Vice Magazine removed from its website today. Entitled “Last Words,” the spread is part of VICE’s Women in Fiction issue, which is dedicated entirely to female writers and artists. The photos were removed after they sparked immediate online outrage. VICE issued an apology reading, in part, that “the fashion spreads in VICE magazine are always unconventional and approached with an art editorial point-of-view rather than a typical fashion photo-editorial one. Our main goal is to create artful images, with the fashion message following, rather than leading.”
