Hi Everyone, I took a photo of a friend a few years ago after she came to my home after leaving the emergency room. The photo is not flattering but is an honest and strikingly sad portrait, something along the lines of a Nan Goldin. At the time I took it I had her verbal permission. I love this photo and have had it in my portfolio and on my website for some time. My friend asked me to take it down because it brings back bad memories for her. She also said that she wanted some sort of document stating that it won't be used again. I don't mind doing this because she is my friend, however, I may want to use for a show abroad or in my portfolio. I've been complimented on this photo by a lot of artists and I feel attached to it. I feel like as long as it's not in her face I should have the right to use it, not to sell but to show as an example of my work. I'm I breaking any laws?
