Most books on the subject of recent photographic history will mention Jock Sturges. Controversial yet highly exhibited and published (you will find 8 of his books listed on Amazon.com) he recently joined PN. An opportunity for us all to share the knowledge and expertise of an internationally renowned artist? Not really. He lasted less than a month before being asked to remove his images. The thread beneath his now missing portfolio makes fascinating reading. Whilst appreciating the difficult position Sturges's membership creates for the administrators I understand that in the USA he has Congressional clearance to exhibit his works in public and private galleries and so I am left wondering if a mechanism cannot be created to allow him to show his works on PN. It seems a spectactular own goal to lose the opportunity. A site called photo.net on which an internationally famous photographer is not allowed to exhibit? It's as if a pulitzer prize winner was turned away from a local library book club. This absurdity presents an opportunity to examine the wider issues of censorship on PN and to get a full understanding of just what is and is not permissable.
