Jock Sturges and Sally Mann (1990 and 1992)

The photos of Jock Sturges and Sally Mann (1990s) These two fine art photographers began to receive a world of criticism in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s for their artwork, often of young children, many of them nude of seminude. Mann’s “At Twelve: Portraits of Young Women” turned some heads, but her 1992 work “Immediate Family” captured nude images of her own children, and was met with cries of exploitation and child pornography. Similarly, Sturges’ photographs were attacked as porn masquerading as high art, and FBI agents raided his studio in 1990. One of Mann's photos is pictured at left.
