Supposedly having committed suicide.

British photographer David Hamilton died in Paris on Friday at the age of 83 after committing suicide, a police source told Reuters.


Hamilton, who had lived much of his life in France and whose works had appeared in high-end fashion magazines, was found unresponsive in his home by a neighbour who alerted emergency services, French radio station Europe 1 reported without giving a source.

But back in the 1960s we were naive about nudity and the young - though by the end of the 1960s some people were waking up, as seen by the furore over the cover of the Blind Faith Album, shot by photographer Bob Seidemann with the permission of the 11 year old girl's mother.

The Football scandal rumbles on - with very little attention being paid - Are the clubs keeping a lid on it? They have a lot of power.

Football child sex abuse: Ex-Newcastle player Derek Bell 'wanted to kill abuser' - BBC Sport

FA 'pulled all funding' from child protection project - BBC News

Chelsea begin investigation into historical sex abuse allegations - BBC Sport

Football child sex abuse scandal one of FA's biggest crises - Greg Clarke - BBC Sport

Barry Bennell charged with child sex offences - BBC News

The CPS said in a statement: "The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Bennell will now begin and that he has a right to a fair trial.
"It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings."
But it would be naive to think that there might not have been abuse in any area involving children - sport, photography, the entertainment industry ....

so david hamilton, a photographer, living in France for decades is now linked to UK football abuse claims???

The scatter-gun approach of the OP leaves a lot to be desired.
