David Hamilton

I first came across Hamilton's work in a second-hand rare bookshop and though the soft dreamlike imagery instantly seduces one, there are those images of pubescent girls that verge and hint at the 'male gaze'.

And I struggle to look at them, I question how much modern society has made one conscious of nude photographs of the young ? It is after a perfectly natural state we all go through and then why should in not be documented?.. Of course the way in which it is documented undoubtedly is the key player in whether they are classed as 'sanitary', whatever that means.
