Child Erotica Laureate for Australia
What NAVA and Alison Croggon were arguing for, was agency for 13 year olds to publish naked photos of themselves, however, the mechanism requires Bill to be their pimp, they're not allowed 'the agency' to go into business for themselves, via BEBO, Craig's List or Facebook, because, if they did, it's child pornography.
The PR is also insane! To compare a technical artist, no matter how competent, to Caravaggio, is to fantasically exaggerate, it's a lunatic idea, very few photographers in the history of America or Europe, would have the brass neck, or deranged ego, to claim such a comparison.
Henon, is an accidental artist, leaving aside his 'Silence of the Lambs, autopsy imagery, it is clear, that the technique, is trial and error, with a technical tool, like borrowing a still from cine material, which we see all the time, that's a fortuitous art scenario.
