Words fail me…

When it comes to the subject of children and photography, the perverted views of those who would “protect” our children leaves me aghast. Yes, their stance towards the subject of children in art and photography is nothing more than perverse.

You can read Robert Nelson’s piece in the Sydney Morning Herald (Knee-jerk fear seems the rule in matters of children and art SMH Jan 6 2011) about the Sydney Childrens Hospital’s craven response to fear of criticism of this photo by artist, Del Kathryn Barton, by the new puritans here:

One response to “Words fail me…

  1. It is absolutely and totally outrageous, Rob, that this art photo could be considered to be indecent by anyone but moronic zealots.
    Nudity, even child nudity, is not pornography, is not indecent, and has nothing at all to do with paedophilia.

    No idea what kind of sick minds could object to this photo, or photos similar to it. Who let the lunatics out of the asylums?
