‘Challenging’ Nude Photo of 10-Year-Old Brooke Shields Pulled From London Exhibit

An exhibit in the Tate Modern in London called "Pop Life: Art In A Material World" included an image by Richard Prince of Brooke Shields posing naked while standing in a bathtub with a face full of makeup at the age of 10. It was kept behind a door labeled "challenging," to shield visitors who might find it offensive. However, officers from the Obscene Publications Unit have ordered the museum to remove the image while they figure out if displaying it breaks any laws. Prince's image is a photo of the photo originally taken by Gary Gross in 1975, which Shields's mother commissioned. The (aptly named) Gross planned to turn the shot into a poster. [Telegraph UK]
