I just saw it online and wanted to get  more opinions



-The first image referenced in the Vatican pedophilia.
-The second image the child sexual abuse in tourism in Thailand.
-The third refers to the war in Arab countries.

I like it. It is thought provoking, which is what social commentary should be. I'm sure some will be offended, but oh well. I have seen far more offensive pieces when I was at art school just for the sake of being offensive rather than drawing attention to major issues.

Thought provoking. I like it; it creates pretty powerful images, especially taken as a whole.

It is powerful and I'm sure offensive to some. What it does for me is really put a spotlight on the victimization of children in our world. Very sad.

Provocative and thought provoking like art should be.

I wonder who the artist is?

Very poignant. My DD happened to be looking over my shoulder as I viewed this and it started a conversation I don't think I would have ever had with her otherwise. That is a good thing; she recognized the role of art portraying current events in a way other than journalistic photography.
