David Hamilton, born in 1933, is a controversial photographer and film maker who is famous for portraying young girls in nostalgic settings with a soft focus. Most of the young girls he shoots are nude or semi-nude which is why he has been accused of making child pornography instead of art. I believe this controversy mainly started because of some pedophile scandals which rightly upset and worried a lot of people. I’m still making up my mind about these photographs, and I must say that his pictures with clothed girls are my favourites so far. But I do not believe we should link these pictures, which are quite innocent and extremely beautiful, with pedophily or perversities. These pictures remind me of a long lost paradise where everyone is happy, young and innocent. Hamilton has inspired a lot of fashion designers, fellow photographers and film directors who have adopted this thirst for nostalgia in their work. What do you think about it? Perverse or Beautiful?
