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.
