Why Does It Not Surprise Me?

That the obnoxious fat wanker Elton John owns a photograph that is considered by Northumbria Police to be child porn. The image of two young girls naked, photographed by Nan Goldin is called Klara and Edda belly-dancing, is one of 139 images that were to be displayed at the Baltic Centre in Gateshead.

Having done a Google for some of Nan Goldin’s work, I have to say that as a whole the images are complete wank. I don’t recall ever having seen so much crap photography in one place for years. You can see some of the images Here, most of them are what I would describe as “snaps”, poorly composed, poorly lit and most of them seem to be of drugged up trailer trash.

To be honest the images that are for sale wouldn’t even make it to my light box, yet alone to the printers for making 20”x 30” Cibachromes of. I defy anyone to argue that the image shown above has any merits, artistically, technically, historically. If I am completely candid, she hasn’t even got a nice pair of tits. It just goes to show that with a bit of gumption you can exploit the rich fat twat out of his money and that you can be rich beyond the dreams of avarice, but money can’t buy you good taste.

Klara and Edda belly-dancing must be fairly obnoxious as even Nan Goldin hasn’t got a single copy of it on the internet that I could see, despite the fact that she seems to have whored every other image all over the web.
