Elton John’s Child Pornography Seized by Authorities

Elton John

Elton John had a controversial photograph by Nan Goldin seized from his private art collection on the suspicion that it may have breached child pornography laws. The photo was of two young girls, one of which was partly clothed with her legs spread, and the other was naked stationed between the legs. At this moment, the age of the young girls is unknown. According to M&C,

The photo in question was to be exhibited at the Baltic Modern Art gallery, Tyneside, this week along with Goldin’s other work.

The Telegraph writes that the day before it was viewed by the public, police came and removed it for fear it was breaking the law.

The Telegraph alleges an assistant director at the gallery called it in to the authorities last Thursday.

I’m not one to bash art or creativity, but I fail to see the photography talent in exploiting two young girls for an art exhibition. A real art exhibition. Not and underground child pornography ring, but an art gallery that features stimulating work of modern artists. Unfortunately, the only stimulation left in that gallery was in the pants of the forty five pedophiles waiting in line for tickets.

Well thats just plain disgusting.

I haven’t seen the picture in question, but nude bodies have been used in art for entirely nonsexual purposes for a long time — like, thousands of years. This is not necessarily any different from the countless other nude pieces displayed in galleries all over the world.

Oh FFS get a grip. A lot of stuff in books is “just plain disgusting” too. Oooo I know, let’s go burn them. If you delicate little flowers will get all sweaty and have palpitations the answer is simple – don’t go to the exhibition. Stop trying to tell the rest of us what we can and can’t do, or go emigrate someplace where you might one day be allowed to, like Cuba.

Oh, please. Nudity doesn’t automatically mean exploitation. And no one can make a judgment call as to whether the picture is “sexual” or not without seeing it, but somehow I’m guessing it’s not.

Nice irony by following it up with some real exploitation, though.
