"Beautiful art can be pornographic and pornography can be artistically beautiful."
and
"The viewer brings their innocence and their corruption to any work of art. It is hard to blame the artist for other people's corruption. And yet the artist should know of our common corruption for there is no temptation that is not common to man (1 Corinthians 10:13). The intelligentsia should know the failure and weakness of humanity."

So very true! Its getting a little old when the ignorant class it as 'porn' and the artist as a 'paedophile'. I admire Bill Henson's work, I was not surprised by the reaction his images received, tho I am surprised that he publish such images.
Did you see the news yesterday? I happening all over again...
