Lolita.
May 15, 2007

Michael Reichmann runs a website called Luminous Landscapes. He has posted this photo of a pregnant 13-year-old girl and titled it "Lolita": http://www.luminous-landscape.com/locations/amazon07.shtml

When asked why he titled the photo "Lolita", he is quoted as answering: ‘Given the fact that she looks to be about 13 years old and is pregnant, can you think of a better name?’

My question would be whether Mr. Reichmann can think at all. Few words have more unpleasant connotations than "Lolita" when used in conjunction with young girls. I am thoroughly disgusted.

So are a number of professional photographers here:

Is it just me, or is this way over the line?
