This blog is a comparison of the work of two artists, one a photographer, the other a painter. The aim of the comparison is to shed light on the nature of their work by using each as a frame of reference for the other. His book The Age of Consent was banned in Australia until The first and most obvious commonality is their celebration of the naked female body. Hamilton subjects very rarely look directly at the camera. They often appear preoccupied with some inner reality even when in the company of other young women.
There is certainly a strong theme of the precocious sexuality of Hamilton subjects running through his work. This sexuality is captured in a number of ways. This portrait appears to be of quite a young girl who radiates a sexuality well beyond her years and Hamilton has documented such young women extensively in his work. To argue that young girls of this age are as aware of the incipient sexuality that these pictures would suggest, is perhaps stretching the point. The latent sexuality in these pictures is a reflection of the photographers view of the subject and the interpretation that the viewer brings to the photograph, which will be true regardless of the quality of the work. It would also be true and fair to say that Hamilton certainly extends his view of the sexuality of the nymphet beyond the photographs above. There is a series of photographs of young woman bathing in the farmhouse in France. In this series of photos the models appear rather more engaged with each other than they do in previous photographs.

But his vision of the Garden of Eden is threatened today by political intolerance and a jaundiced eye.
Hi I think you are all lucky to marry a Doctor. When I was a teen, my first boyfriend was a convert and people would comment on that instead of how nice he was to me. Living in an interfaith, marriage can be hell. Anyway, before you marry you should work out anything hypothetical that might come up in the future.
