Playboy, Brooke Shields and the fetishisation of young girls.
Child abuse campaigners are furious at Tate Modern gallery's decision to show an 'obscene' picture of a naked year-old Brooke Shields. Yesterday critics called for the image of the star to be withdrawn from the new exhibition, which opens tomorrow, saying it was unacceptable. They claimed the picture would attract paedophiles to the gallery and said organisers should have taken advice from parents before deciding to show it. The exhibition also features huge sexually explicit images of penetration and works made from the pages of pornographic magazines. Then and now: A year-old Brooke Shields in the film Pretty Baby left , and at a party last month at 44 right. MailOnline chose not to show the portrait of naked year-old Shields before it was removed from the Tate Modern.
Brooke Shields as a nude 10-year-old: Tate Modern to display nude giant pornographic images
There was no hiding Brooke Shields from the frenzy surrounding the film Pretty Baby, in which she starred as year-old Violet, who lived with her prostitute mother in a Storyville brothel in New Orleans. But she was insulated from the controversy ignited by her nude scenes in the film. At the time, the precociously striking Shields had done modeling, commercials, and a couple of made-for-TV movies. Creative license aside, the film was based on a real place and inspired by the life and times of E. Bellocq, who photographed Storyville prostitutes; in the film, his character falls in love with Violet and sets up house with her.

T he Richard Prince photograph of Brooke Shields that Tate Modern recently withdrew from the exhibition Pop Life, after Scotland Yard suggested it might break obscenity laws, travelled across the Atlantic carrying a long history of controversy. It shows a year-old Shields, oiled and glistening, naked and made-up, posing in a marble bathtub with a seductive danger that belies her years. It tells you everything about what we fear and desire. Prince, Schorr tells me, has never met Shields. Intent on questioning notions of authorship and originality, he rephotographed an existing image that had already inspired two years of legal debate.
His body of work is unknown, eclipsed by a single pictorial he undertook for American socialite Teri Shields. In , Garry Gross scribbled his name into a dubious footnote in the history of photography by photographing a nude year-old Brooke Shields. The rest was history — and a rancorous one as that. On this blog, the post of Brooke Shields which detailed the controversy remains the most visited entry , and comments there represent a veritable cross-section of pluralistic viewpoints and range from informed to inane. But apart from occasional interview, Gross remained in semi-retirement.
