Dreamchild

On the front cover of the July issue of Art Monthly Australia is artist Polixeni Papapetrou‘s photo “Lewis Carroll’s Beatrice Hatch before White Cliffs” (taken in 2002), which features her then-five-year-old daughter Olympia in the nude. The work has generated a great deal of controversy in Australia over whether child nudity equals child pornography. (Papapetrou’s “Dreamchild” series was featured in Knight Letters 71 and 72.)
